Brian submitted his personal epilepsy story to Living Well With Epilepsy to share his epilepsy experience.
Brian’s Epilepsy Story
About 4 years ago I had to accept and learn how to live with a seizure disorder. I’m 29 years old and I experience a headache/migraine and a sense of déjà vu that will at times progress into a seizure.
These seizures began randomly several years ago. Because I lacked medical insurance, I was unable to get proper testing until January 2014.
I have finally confirmed that the episodes I’ve been experiencing for 4 years are actually partial seizures, and are not progressing into convulsive seizures.
I am looking forward to starting an awareness group to help people cope with life with epilepsy and these new restrictions. I also hope to support the families who now have to grow accustom to this disorder and limitations.
