As for my child, I pride myself on the fact that she has just as normal a life as her friends and classmates, and I work very hard at this. Does her mother have seizures? Yes, but she is cognizant of that and she knows how to react. I surround myself with people who understand and care, from my husband to my very, very close friends. So, I never worry that she is deprived of love and attention.
Epilepsy Advocate and Healthy Women have launched a new campaign to focus on women living with Epilepsy.
We never conceal my Epilepsy from our daughter. As she grows, I haven’t been quiet about the fact that other parents are not in agreement with this approach. But, as I’ve said, it’s the way we have chosen to tackle parenting when one parent lives with a chronic disease.
Now that my daughter is 4 1/2 years old, I’ve begun to feel that sense of guilt. Does my epilepsy affect her life?
A woman with Epilepsy can get pregnant, but you must make sure you do the right things.
