We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy



I’ve had sporadic seizures for my whole life.

I have not been diagnosed with epilepsy as no one is quiet sure what triggers them, and as a 17 year old this scares me.

Just the other night I had one while sleeping in a friends bed. I woke her up, and she timed it for three minutes, exactly.

When I finally came to my senses I had my usual headache, soreness, and speech problems. This time around though, my mouth hurt, and I threw up on my pillow.

Once finding my way home I realized I had chipped my front tooth, and bruised another.

I have my seizures most commonly in my sleep, anyone else?
