My name is Sita, and I am a 28 year old who wants to make a community for people living with epilepsy. I try to make it somewhat humorous, but also to also have meaningful conversations and thoughts about living with a sometimes debilitating disability. I also hope that this blog teaches about epilepsy, and helps to reduces the stigma that many people with epilepsy feel. This stigma can be as debilitating as the seizures themselves, so by educating people about how to act in the event of the seizure, how to support someone with epilepsy, and by just knowing the daily struggles of a person who is living with uncontrolled seizures, it can make a huge difference.
I also LOVE tea, deep meaningful conversations, and the sound of the rain. I have recently acquired a degree in Social Work, and the non academic me is bubbly, silly, fun and caring. I love owls and loved them before it was trendy to be obsessed with them. I love working out, and I am working to live life one day at a time, and to be at peace with things that I have no control over.
I am writing solely from my perspective, so I am not trying to speak on the behalf of everyone who lives with epilepsy, or for the behalf of everyone who lives with a chronic condition. I hope that people with chronic conditions who read this blog (epilepsy or something else) are able to relate to my posts, and if they are struggling too, they know that they are not alone. Every single one of these posts are written from the bottom of my heart, and I hope that you feel that.
