I’m Michelle aged 23
I was diagnosed with Partial onset epilepsy when I was 9 months old.
I only had absence seizures and déjavu until I hit my teens and started to go through puberty.
I started to take Tonic Clonic seizures every few months.
When I became pregnant age 17 I had 2 Tonic Clonic seizures and my epilepsy went away but after 2 years I was weaned from medication.
I became pregnant again but this time my epilepsy was out of control.
I had TC’s almost everyday.
Now my epilepsy is partially controlled to roughly 1 Tonic clonic a month along with absences and déjavu.
Both my children developed epilepsy.
I still hope someday the seizures will go away.
