My Story and My Mission

I finally made it home today, after a long week, not just a couple of days Monday and Tuesday I had seizures I know I'm lucky to have a support group here at home. The support I felt in DC was nothing that I feel here I got love and support there just felt different I don't know if it was because everyone there knew what I meant when I told my story.

Telling my story and realizing that I haven't told my full story on here:

My story starts when I was 6 years old I was diagnosed with epilepsy at the time they weren't 100% sure which type of seizures I was having. I was lucky to have friends to take care of me I recall one day specifically I was in the playground and I had a seizure and walked out into the street in front of an oncoming car, luckily I had a friend nearby who pulled me out of the street. I was 7 at the time, what 7-year-old steps in front of a car one that is in the middle of an absence seizure but I didn't know that at the time. It wasn't until I was 14 until I was diagnosed with absences seizures by then everyone I knew had a system. When I say system I mean a series of questions which in my opinion got very annoying. The questions they would ask would pertain to something like what day is it, what's your name, where are you, who am I little questions of those sorts. When I turned 16 I finally found a doctor that did me good Dr. Colliar she changed my life so much and made an impact in my life. Around when I was 20 I started this blog. When Dr. Colliar ended up leaving to somewhere in Denver I felt lost because I was seizure free for the longest time it took me 6 months to find Dr. Wheeler.  So I have to leave my little town every 6 months to see him Casper, WY.  To this day I am still diagnosed with Atypical absence seizures to this day. I'm lucky to have the people in my life that I do who protect me and take care of my I love every single one of them. 

This is my story and there is more to tell my story doesn't end here it's an ongoing story. I hope this page can be a place where we can all come together and share our stories. Let us become happy positive and comfortable with who we are.

More Change....It's Good Though

I know I put it on my podcast but need to let my readers know I am enrolling in college, so I'm cutting back in some areas. My blog is my home and the first project that I have been neglecting horribly, and I apologize I use to use it as a safe place from my ex-husband and where my divorce is finally finalized as of September 19th, 2019. I don't really need a safe place anymore, but I still want to strive to help people, and I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I need to work on myself before I can genuinely help someone else. Starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2019, my boyfriend and I are going to be working out as a couple. I'm excited because well, as cheesy as it sounds, this is a first for me. I'm making new frists with him; we are going to be Pikachu and Ash Ketchum for Halloween; it's another first for me as well. I've been so happy with my life lately; I almost forgot to keep my passion alive. I know that sounds weird, but it happens life

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

I really don't know what I want this post to be about, I've talked about unplugging what I'm up to I just won't call writers' block. If  I were to do that though I personally feel like I'd be giving up, I've been racking my head on how to finish out this project I've been working on. I want to tell you, but it's a secret, and I can't wait until everything is done. I will tell you this project is suitable for everyone of any type. I know I've announced that I am now an ambassador for 2 companies, but they still have a couple things in common Craft 1816 and Just Strong. In case you haven't heard of these brands, Craft 1816 is a CBD oil company and is THC free Just Strong is a fitness clothing company based out of the UK. As far as I know from the other ambassadors I've met, they are just really into health or have a form of disability themselves. I haven't met someone with Epilepsy yet. Just Strong believes in mental and physic
