Hugh - Age 37


I’m Hugh, aged 37.

I was diagnosed with Epilepsy at the age of 12 and since 2006 I’ve had Atonic seizures (drop seizures).
My seizures don’t last long and I am back to normal very quickly.
The only time an ambulance has to be called is if I cut my head when falling.

After a few years of struggling with adjusting to Epilepsy.
I became more confident again and went to 6th form college to do Media Studies, which I passed!
I then did some volunteer work at Oxfam and 2 hospital radio stations.
I also got a job at a playscheme before I moved areas.
I went to Uni a bit later on and came out with a degree in Business Management.

It is hard at first, but even if you are uncontrolled, don’t give up!
You can still achieve what others can. 🙂
