Taking some me time to read this morning at park and take deep breaths. Life has been a doozy recently and trying to recoup. Here's to self-care. #epilepsystruggles #autismmom #smallbusinessowner

This is my epilepsy story. When I was around 7 months old, I had my first seizure. I was living in and out of the hospital for about a year. During that year, that is when I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I got put on a certain medication and from that point forward, my epilepsy has been controlled, until October of 2016. Back in October, I was having a hard time reading, which is something I really enjoy. Whenever I read in a book, something didn't feel right. Everything I read just didn't really click. And seizures were the last thing that crossed my mind. I was sent to a neurologist who wanted to do a 48 hour test known as an EEG. It came concluded that I have been taking roughly around 20 daily since October. I got put on another seizure medication right after Christmas. After a few weeks of being on it, I got put on another medication including the two other medications I've on. Ever since I got put on that third medication, I've been seizure free. I have been seizure free since January 28th of 2017. Epilepsy just isn't seizures, there are side effects you deal with from after a seizure plus seizure medication, such as experience with memory loss, anxiety/depression, headaches, and tiredness. Some of those side effects I've experienced. Someone once told me that I am stronger than I give myself credit for, and I try my best to remind myself that on a daily basis, on the good days and bad. Epilepsy isn't easy living with, I've been living with it most of my life. It may be a part of my life, but it doesn't define the true person I am. #supportepilepsy #seizures #seizure #epilepsynewengland #epilepsy #epileptic #epileptics #epilepsysucks #epilepsylife #epilepsystrong #epilepsylivesmatter #epilepsyjourney #epilepsyprobs #epilepsyawareness #epilepsystory #epilepsystruggles #purpleforme #purpleforepilepsy #neurology #novemberforepilepsy #neurologicaldisorder #neurological #seizetheday #seizures #seizure #fightepilepsy #epilepsy #epileptic #epileptics #epilepsylife💜 #epilepsyfighter #epilepsydoesnthaveme #epilepsyproblems #epilepsyadvocate #epilepsystrong #epilepsy

It's possible that we all have some reminders of past episodes. Scary seizures unfortunately leave scars that we need to look at everyday, but also reminders of the adversity we have overcome! #stagesofepilepsy #epilepsy #epilepsyaware #epilepsyawareness #epilepsyfighter #seizurestrong #seizuresarenotfun #seizuressuck #epilepsystruggles #epileptic #chronicillnesses #epilepsylife💜 #epilepsylife #chronicillness #purpleforme #purpleformegan #purpleforepilepsyawareness #purpleforepilepsy #novemberforepilepsy

After having a seizure, the sleep for the night sometimes ends up being on the floor and it's been the ground of many different places too. Some might even get out of bed so that they don't fall out of it! #stagesofepilepsy #epilepsyaware #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #seizures #purpleformegan #purpleforme #purpleforepilepsyawareness #purpleforepilepsy #novemberforepilepsy #epilepsystruggles #epilepsystruggle #seizuresarenotfun #epilepsywarrior #epilepsywarriorsunited #epilepsywarriors #epilepsylife #epilepsylivesmatter #epilepsylife

👍👍👍 l @Regrann from @stagesofepilepsy - We all know that stress is a big trigger for seizures! If we can figure out how to reduce the stress and anxiety in our lives, it will be a step towards a good night's sleep and less episodes! How can we relax? #stagesofepilepsy #epilepsyaware #epilepsyawareness #epilepsyfighter #seizures #seizuressuck #epilepsystruggles #epilepsystruggle #seizuretrigger #epilepsywarriors #epilepsywarrior #purpleforepilepsyawareness #purpleformegan #purpleforme #purpleforepilepsy #novemberforepilepsy #epilepsylife - #regrann

It's so important for many factors to be considered when going on an anticonvulsant or even a bunch at a time. What aeds work together and what variables should neurologists consider more closely? #stagesofepilepsy #epilepsyaware #epilepsy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsyfighter #seizures #purpleformegan #purpleforme #purpleforepilepsyawareness #purpleforepilepsy #novemberforepilepsy #epilepsystruggles #epilepsystruggle #aeds #anticonvulsants #anticonvulsant #Topiramate #keppra #Fycompa #Levetiracetam #Lamictal #dilantin
