I remember when Emily and I were first dating. My friends would ask me, “Aren’t you worried about what would happen if she has a seizure? Can you deal with that?” I would always find that such a strange question. I wanted to be with Emily for who she was as a person.
I met Daniel properly in 2014. He had read a lot of my blogs before we even started talking, so he knew all about my condition. So I never had to break it to him that I live with this unpredictable condition of Epilepsy. Sometimes that can be one of the hardest parts in the beginning of a new relationship.
One of the things I do yearly is to look at my seizure triggers and try and create a plan of action in order to avoid seizures in my life, so I thought I would go through the items that I deal with and how to avoid issues throughout the year so that you may find some sort of system that works for you.
