Let the Journey Begin
Growing up my disabilities never defined or stopped me, my family and friends wouldn’t let it slow me down. We simply figured out different ways to do basic things. Even when I was diagnosed with a seizure disorder epilepsy, it was just something new to figure out. I’ll never forget sitting at lunch, talking to my friends about how I was going to make it out of the classroom before the girl I liked saw me have a seizure. From that first seizure in 7th grade to my last day of high school, nothing was going to hold me back. I can say that if it were not for the people around me, I would not be where I am today writing this blog and enjoying my independence.
Recently things have begun to change and not letting these challenges define me has become much more of a struggle. From not having my driver’s license to having a hard time getting a job, there are certain things that even the most positive of attitudes can’t shake. I have recently decided to have an operation that will hopefully limit my seizures drastically. I have decided to use this blog to chronicle my journey to get the surgery, and the people I meet along the way. I hope to give people a look into my world, and hopefully inspire a few people as well.
