The possibility of developing epilepsy had never occurred to Meg Busing before her first seizure struck. After suffering a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) during a car accident as a teenager, Meg was never told about the possibility of developing post-traumatic epilepsy. Her first seizure occurred during a college class five years after the accident.

In this episode, Meg reveals how epilepsy impacted so many aspects of her life; from being a student, to her budding nursing career, to dating, to having a child. Hear how she navigated living her best life with epilepsy and her advice for others.
