Cameron Boyce's Impact

I've talked about SUDEP on here before and after the recent event of Cameron Boyce tragically passing away due to having a seizure in his sleep and then passing away afterward. There are many articles on his passing. The one I actually like the most would be an article by Forbes. It's one of the few that I have personally read talking about SUDEP. If you haven't read my personal views and some of the facts about it click here.

I feel that SUDEP needs to be mentioned more than it has been in the past. 

Here's a short list:

1. SUDEP is the leading cause of epilepsy-related mortality.
2. The etiology of SUDEP is unknown.
3. SUDEP is rare; 1 child with epilepsy out of 4,500 per year and 1 adult with epilepsy out of 1,000 per year.
4. The only known risk factor is recurrent generalized tonic-clonic seizures.
5. The only known SUDEP prevention is seizure control.
I want to make a positive post like normal but I can't because someone has been lost to a serious thing that doesn't really have any answers or reasoning behind it. The world has lost a great person actor and role model only at age 20 SUDEP took him from this world and the people who loved him.  I know little about Cameron Boyce so I had to look him up a little more from what I already knew. I knew that he played Luke on the Disney show Jessie and that he played Carlos in the Disney Descendants franchise and that he was in Grownups 1 and 2. I still had to do more reading I felt down deep that if I was going to write about him that I had to read up on him and I found an article about him on The thing is I was having troubles find actual articles about just him and not his death.  
From here on out I would like to talk about his life a little. From what I have learned about him Cameron Boyce was born in LA he started acting at only 10 years old landing a role in the show General Hospital: Night Shift later on in his life he would land a permanent role on one of Disney's hit shows Jessie. Cameron's career didn't stop there when the movie Descendents came out he played the role of Carlos Curella's son. Making 3 movies for Disney and even play a role in 2 of Adam Sandler's movies at a young age of 20 Cameron already had a great career making good friend's like Debbie Ryan and Dove Cameron. Cameron Boyce had a big future ahead of him one that was taken from him.

Upon writing this it's felt weird since this isn't my normal writing style. I've learned how someone's death can not only change someone's life but as well as how some people treat it. I know that there are good people out there and want to tell the truth and as well as spread awareness about SUDEP then you get the people who just want to take advantage of the situation. I have been having issues finishing this post because of those types of people that's not me. I almost didn't say anything about it on Instagram. Someone losing a life is sad and upsetting and I just don't understand how people want to use it to get views. Finding out that Cameron Boyce was part of the community was a surprise to me.

I'm going to leave this off with something positive and look at it like this Cameron Boyce didn't let his epilepsy hold him back from his dreams. I'm going to look at his work as an inspiration to the epilepsy community. Seeing that someone that had a seizure disability made it so far and strive to do what I want and be what I want. I know I've said this once already but as inspiring as his story may have been acting with epilepsy and the fact that SUDEP is getting talked about now because we lost someone. Not just anyone though Cameron Boyce who was a form of a blessing to everyone in some way or another. He inspired people and made them laugh. For the short amount of time he was on this earth he made a big impact on it and is making an impact still.

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
