After 40 years of living with epilepsy Peter reminds us that we need to stay strong and not be afraid to tell others about our disease.
Hello my name is Peter and I’ve had epilepsy since the age of 14 years old. I am now 54 years old I’ve been living with epilepsy practically, my whole life.
I want to encourage all the people who have epilepsy be strong don’t be afraid to tell others that you have epilepsy. I’ve worked in construction and as a butcher, and now I’m working as a cook.
We who have epilepsy are just as normal as the next person. To all who have epilepsy: remember you are strong. Thank you for listening to me.
