Hello fellow teenagers...
My name's Austin. I am 19 years old living with Epilepsy, and I want to help you out. I dealt with a lot of confusion, lonliness, and depression around 2008-2009 ever since I was diagnosed with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy.
With the help of this website, as well as my family and friends, and of course my doctor, I learned to control my JME. I have about one seizure a year, and that's it. I'm currently interning and I'm going to a nice college. I'm going to do what I love with my life. Epilepsy will not hold you back; it will only change you, and make you a more ambitious person. But it's NOT EASY.
Please contact me guys, if you just want someone to talk to. It made all the difference when I was a younger teen, and I want to be there for you guys as well. It's a terrible thing to think about, and I want to show you how to, well, live easier.
Just trying to reach out. This forum has worked wonders for me since 2008 and I want to give back.
Just hit me up. I'm here, I'll listen, and I'll help.
