Hey to anyone who actually reads this, I'm Aleisha, I'm 16 and in Grade 12. I have a million things wrong with me. They have been trying to figure out me epilepsy for 3 years now, and still haven't. I have absences, auras, tonic clonic seizures, myoclonic jerks, migraines, concentration problems, paralysis in my legs sometimes, and severe anxiety. WAHOO!
I honestly feel like I have lost 90% of my dignity. I had my first big seizure at a massive city festival in front of thousands of people. I was always worried about having them at school, but everytime I did, there weren't many people there, and they were mostly teachers and my friends... Until yesterday.
Yesterday we were just finishing the last race of the sports carnival and I had a seizure. In front of hundreds of students and teachers that I have to see every day. I peed my pants, convulsed, cried like an idiot, fell down, got wheeled of in a wheel chair unconscious and did I mention peed my pants? I was almost six months clear. I feel like a failure. Does anyone know if there is anything I can do to get it under control. I am open to anything, absolutely anything because my plans haven't worked haha.
