You are stronger than you think
I have to be honest this post is going to be a bit differnt to my previous posts. As it is not so much me giving advice, its more voicing an opionion and sharing my story of loosing someone close to you due to epilepsy. Therefore I hope this can help others to relate to. Who have or are going through a similur situation.
Three weeks ago yesturday I got the horrfic news that one of my very close family friends, had suddenly passed away due to epilepsy. He was only 27. When I first heard the news I sobbed and screamed with the pain and anger of how such a loving, caring and young guy could just be taken so suddenly.
It made me and still makes me so so angry that epilepsy can do this to someone and his family. Seeing what they're going through is heart breaking. I have never ever felt pain like it, you feel like your body is eating you up inside. A constant feeling of sickness and darkness . Sometimes this disappers but then suddently the feeling just hits you again.
Due to what has happened, it had made me realise how lucky I am to have my epeilpsy controlled at the moment. And that I and others really need to just apprciate every day and every breathe that we take. As life is so precious! However it also does scare me, as someone so close to you can just go so young, and suddenly from the same condition is terrifing. But it has made me so so much more determind to live my life, do everything and anything that I want to do. And made me aware of what is really important in life. So please please, apperciate what you have, your family, friends and your health because that is so valuable.
My self and his family are going to create fundrasing events and try are hardest to raise arwarness for this awful conditon. Therefore in future posts I will be disussing any events or sponsering that shall be happening.
WE NEED TO RAISE AWARNESS, RAISE MORE MONEY TO MAKE PEOPLE MORE AWARE AND GO INTO RE-SEARCH. SO THESE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, WHO DESERVE SUCH A LONG LIFE AHEAD OF THEM ISN'T SHORTENED.
Hi welcome, to my blog! Come follow my journey and read my experiences of living with epilepsy.
