My Beautiful 12-Year-Old Daughter That Is an Epilepsy Warrior

Hi, I'm Miyah's mom. She is 12 years old and was diagnosed with generalized tonic clonic seizures and myoclonic absence seizures 3 years ago.

Photosensitive epilepsy

Blinking lights and those school lights are one of the main causes for her seizures. She cant watch tv in the dark and cant travel when it's really bright out or when it's dark out. She started having them out of no where with no reasons why. This has been a very long and scary path for us with many doctors appointment and medication changes. She has been having a hard time in school with kids making fun of her and her not fitting in with the "popular kids", but we are holding on strong hoping for answer and a medication that will stop the seizures.

Epilepsy cannot stand in our way

Why don't we let epilepsy stand in your way? Well because we are strong, we have faith, and we have each other and family!!! She would love to have a journal to write her emotions on after having a seizure this would help her and also help doctors know how she was feeling after each seizure. Thank you for doing this and bless your hearts!!!

Meet Miyah 💜
