Hi Betty0209,

You and my daughter should talk - she is 19 and is bummed about the same things. She just wrote a poem about it - I'd love you to take a look and comment on it - maybe you share some of the same feelings?

Hi betty0209,
I am 16 years old and have knowingly been living with epilepsy since I was 10. I find the hardest parts are not being able to drive at the moment, and not being able to go out, drink, and party with my friends. It just always feels like epilepsy is limiting what i can do. It is soothing to know there are people out there that know what I am going through.

Hey, I'm 16... I'll be seventeen in a few weeks, actually. If you still want to talk to someone who's had epilepsy, you can hit me up on my email.
