Nykki’s Story

Sympathy is not the answer - awareness and recognition are

I had my first seizure (grand mal) in 2008, while pregnant with my send daughter. I was diagnosed in 2010 with blunt force trauma to both temporal lobes due to domestic violence. It’s been hard. The words “brain damage “and “blunt force trauma” haunt me. I say them in my head all the time. I am stronger than I believe though, looking back. I pray for a cure for all of us warriors. And not for sympathy or remorse but simply awareness and recognition.
