Campaign: To raise awareness of epilepsy

I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was three-years-old. Since then, it has affected my school, work and social life.

 

I was often sent home from school due to the frequency of my seizures and I ended up finding it difficult to make friends. I felt isolated from my classmates.

 

More recently, I was also diagnosed with the learning difficulties dyslexia and dyscalculia, but this had been overlooked for years due to the attention my epilepsy required.

 

With the help of Fixers, I want to be able to help young epileptics come to terms with their condition and have a greater understanding of what it is.

 

I hope to inspire determination and encourage others to move forward with their lives despite the challenges that they may face.
