It’s hard

I was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 14. I had to get birth control when I got diagnosed. In addition, my headache got so bad, I never feel good and I can’t gain weight. This is all such a hard experience.

Does anyone in the community share a similar experience?

  1. , I am sorry that you are struggling with your epilepsy. Personally, I experienced excessive headaches while I was on a medication that was not right for me. After informing my neurologist we worked towards finding alternative medication. I hope you find a care plan that works best for your needs.
    Best wishes,
