This personal story submitted by Carley who has lived with epilepsy since she was 13 years old. I hope you enjoy getting to know Carley’s story and benefit from her experience as much as I have.
I am Carley Jones and was just told about this site through someone at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland Ohio. I have had epilepsy since I was 13 and am now 21 years old. I think the hardest part of epilepsy is the driving.
I am currently in college and in a very remote area so it is very hard to get to and from places. I have to have someone take me to class everyday and they don’t ask for money. When they do how much should I give them, I don’t know.
Epilepsy is also embarrassing at times. People always wonder why I am by myself. What I really want the most is to meet others with epilepsy. There is so much more but this is just a start.
