it is hard

My epilepsy affects school very much I have complex partial TLE . It has taken me seven years to get past my second year to become a junior. After transferring I am now a freshmen again.it is difficult. I have to drop out a lot because I get behind. But we gotta keep trucking. It will be,ok

Haven't Lost Hope

The first time I went to college, I had to take a medical leave because the stress was too much (it was causing more seizures). I ended up going back 2 years later and had to quit again because between my medications and my seizures, I couldn't attend class quite a bit. It's taken me a few years, but I applied to transfer to school with an online program so I can finish my undergraduate degree. I don't care if I get pushed back from a senior to a sophomore. I'm going to finish!
