Day 7 Chronic Illness Challenge

Day 7: What was the biggest realization that you have had?

When I was first diagnosed with epilepsy as a teenager, I was in denial and didn’t want to accept it.  First, I thought the doctor was completely wrong. My mom made sure that I took my medicine on a regular basis.  Then based off of something I had heard, I convinced myself if I had no seizures for 4 years or so, maybe the condition would go away.

One day the realization just hit me that my condition was not going to go away.  I fell into a bit of a depression and struggled to complete courses that normally would have been easy.   However, I wanted to continue to pursue my goal anyway.  Maybe it was my stubbornness that got me through this difficult point in my life.
