I am being BRAVE for kids with epilepsy
I had my first seizure at 5 am on Christmas morning when I was 2 years old. Now I am 13 and going to take on the Ifly challenge to raise money to help little kids who are learning to live with epilepsy - just like I did.
My seizures always seemed to happen at 5 o'clock in the morning, and mostly when I was tired or had been excited or doing lots of fun things. This meant that I nearly always had one when we went on holiday and at Birthdays and Christmas time.
After my seizures, I would feel really sleepy and sick and would vomit and sleep for about 6 hours until I started to feel better. Sometimes I would have to go to the hospital if my seizures went too long and the medication didn't work. It was always scary waking up in an ambulance not knowing what had happened.
I am lucky that as I got older my seizures happened less and less, and now I have not had one for 2 years!
I hope that everyone with epilepsy can stop having seizures - and so I am raising money to help that happen!
