Sarah

My name is Sarah, I’m 24 years old and I have epilepsy. I’ve been living with this condition since I was about 1. The side affects that I get right now are anxiety, a headache here and there and the only time I’ll get an episode is if I don’t get enough rest or I sleep late and the next week coming up my body will start too get tired and I’ll get a seizure. It will last about 3-4 seconds at night, then I’ll go back too sleep and it will happen again. I had longer ones before because of stress when I used too work at a restaurant. I stopped working because of that but after a while I ended up working again in a office where it’s calm. I never got any anxiety until now and my body has changed over the past years. I pray to God every night to take our condition away and hopefully soon it will go away. I used too be depressed, sad, really never had no friends and never told my best friend about my condition until it happened in public. I felt embarrassed because she was a normal person and I didn’t know how she would react. Then I found my true love and I’m currently engaged too my best friend of 7 years; we are getting married in 2018. I’m super excited but I know it’s going to be a challenge for him. I know he will take good care of me because he’s such a great guy!
