my life with Epilepsy

so as you read at the tittle, i have Epilepsy, i got that around when i was 15 years old. so first let me tell you a bit what Epilepsy is, and then i will tell you about my Epilepsy.

First some basic facts about Epilepsy:

Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder and affects people of all ages

Epilepsy means the same thing as “seizure disorders”

Epilepsy is characterized by unpredictable seizures and can cause other health problems

Epilepsy is a spectrum condition with a wide range of seizure types and control varying from person-to-person

my history with epilepsy:

so after months of “Seizures” i was sent to the hospital for 3 weeks (2 times, first time in November and second time in the summer hollidays)to find out if it could be Epilepsy. so after a lot of testing, like EEG-Testing, being awake for 24 hours. and in the end i got to finally know that it was Epilepsy, and kinda glad it was, because now i knew what it was. But Epilepsy for me isnt great at all, because when i get i “seizure” i get so tired afterwards and sleep for 8-12 hours. so the day is not going the way i was hoping for. And for me, i must have gone 1 year without getting anything from “seizures” before i can say i dont have Epilepsy, or i can at least drive a car. thats kinda the worst about it, that i cant drive, and its not good either that im alone…… so theres always gonna be stuff i cant do. so a year ago, it was a week away from a year without a “seizure” and on a Saturday morning a got the “seizure” and i think i`ve never been so angry/sad in my life. so after that i have had it two times, last time was 8 days ago. and it was scary, i couldt move and yeah i was also alone, so i didnt know how long it was. so now i hope it will be a long time till next time. and im ready to spend more times at the hospitals, i so dont like it.
