Danika’s Story

My epilepsy started out as febrile seizures when I was six months old, and I had been taken to the emergency room many times. The seizures stopped for a while, but when I was going into 8th grade, in August 2015, I had my first major seizure. Then I had another in September and another in October. In December, I had two major seizures in one day. Eventually, doctors discovered that I was born with abnormal brain waves that were just starting to affect me. Fortunately, with the medication I am on now, I have not had a seizure since June 2016.
