America Epilepsy

I was diagnosed with Epilepsy at 15. It was hands down the most heartbreaking moment of my life. It was the moment I found out I was different. The moment I found out I would never drive or live alone. At 15 my life felt like it was over before it even began.

Fast forward to today. I have a daughter, she’s the light of my life ( I know that sounds cliche but it’s true) without her or the support of all the loving people in my life I wouldn’t have done half of what i’ve done. White water rafting, Vegas, Go Karting. I also teach children with Autism. To others this may seem like average milestones but to me they’re everything and i’m just getting started.
