An Epilepsy Story: Living with uncontrolled epilepsy

Dan, a reader and a man living with uncontrolled epilepsy, has generously shared his story with us. Below you will find an excerpt: “For the first ten years I was relatively healthy. But the year I turned ten, I contracted viral meningitis.  A few months later I was sledding in the park and had a seizure at the bottom off the hill.  The seizure was scary. The world was spinning, I was throwing up and screaming scared.  After many tests, I was diagnosed with epilepsy.”
