Although I don't remember the exact date, I will never forget the day I was told I had a clean bill of health.
I was told there were no signs of epilepsy according to all the tests.
How this came to be was a wild ride.
In my late thirties, I had my tubes tied because I did not want to be a mom with epilepsy.
A year or so later, I went back to the doctor and asked if this could be reversed.
I began to reconsider that maybe it would be okay to have kids.
So, we ran all the tests and guess what?... the epilepsy had disappeared.
Yes, I had a clean bill of health regarding my epilespy, but I had now launched into early menopause.
By my 40th birthday I had a clean bill of health but it was also too late to have children, I was in full on menopause.
I have experienced many losses due to epilepsy, due to fear of my epilepsy.
But, in the rest of the story I pushed on to a place where even realizing that the epilepsy is really never gone, I get to decide what I will do, rather than what I can't do. I didn't come to this place overnight, it took hard work, being surrounded by empowering women and being coached by people who could speak hard truths in a soft way.
