The difficulties of Epilepsy

I’ve had epilepsy “grand mal” seizures since I was born. It’s caused me to have learning/language disability and caused me to have memory loss problems. It’s been a hard life. Me and my doctors have been trying many meds to get it better, but we finally found two that are helping my seizures calm down. I used to have them every day when I was young and now I have them once every few months. I will be getting surgery to get them removed and hoping they’ll be gone forever. Hopefully my epilepsy will be cured.
