Epilepsy Blog Relay: One woman has four tonic clonic seizures on her daughters graduation day

Patti’s Story

I suffered a series of tonic clonic seizures on the day my daughter graduated from college, which also happened to be my birthday.

My husband and I had a long drive up to Pensacola. We had to pack her up in just one day and then the next day was the graduation and my birthday. The day after graduation we planned to drive back home. A busy few days by anyone’s standards.

On graduation day, everyone was excited as we help pack her up. Once we finished, we finally made it to Pensacola Bay Center. When the Ceremony began, I saw my beautiful daughter walking around and up to the stage to get her diploma! At that moment I was holding back tears with a great big smile.

Later on we celebrated not just her graduation and my birthday, too. When our family celebration was finished my daughter went out with her friends, and my husband and I went back to the hotel. That night I got into bed and all of a sudden BOOM! I began to have a Tonic Clonic Seizure, then another, winding up with a total of four Tonic Clonic Seizures!

I woke up in the morning with an awful migraine. Of course we still had to drive back home. I had to wear a baseball cap with sunglasses all the way home! That’s my personal epilepsy story.
