I will not let this define me.

I have had seizures pretty much all my life, I won't go into detail because I be typing up a book. I use to be ashamed of my disorder, I fell into depressions and I blame my disorder for everything in my life. I have been seizure free now for 2 years and I just want to make a difference. I want to help people and get to know people who have the same disorder as me. Im in the medical field now and I hope to help young kids and adults. We all can be our own success story just don't give up. Don't let this battle ever defeat you.

When hewas 19, he himself found about Neeraj Clinic through online search. We went to their clinic in Rishikesh. After proper check-up, the doctor prescribed us afew medicines. In a span of 7 months we noticed a substantial decline in the occurrence of Seizures. Neeraj Clinic came in as sunshine in our lives. Will suggest youto pay them a visit.
