On the morning of the last day of school before summer vacation began, my best friend's daughter died from SUDEP. I was devastated for her, but I have to admit I have since realized I was devasted for myself as well. I have been running from and denying my seizure history for my years! I have truely never wanted to admit that I have epilepsy and that I have to depend on medication to live the life I live. Next month, I will be running the New York Marathon in honor of the life of Maddie McGuire! I want to run as a epileptic in honor of another epileptic! My full history will follow, but I always want to make sure I honor Maddie! My story may be different, but it could have been the same!
