Someone with epilepsy asked me this question today: Hi Stacey, Hi, how are you? How do you get on with your life when you have epilepsy?
Here was my response:
You need to accept that you have epilepsy. Learn to love yourself. Creat a lifestyle that makes you happy and is suitable for your disorder. You can't change the past - you have epilepsy and its not going to go away. Focus on the present and plan positive goals for the future.
