How not to be a victim

My Challenges

Share with:


Honestly going through the years iv’e found it sometimes very hard coping with the struggles of epilepsy. I honestly found it frustrating because of how it felt like the whole world was against me and it felt like there was no one to help me through what i was going through because i couldn’t explain it to people how i was actually feeling inside. it felt like there was no way out and i was on my own. Honestly it used to wind me up and i’m kind of ashamed to say it but i would verbally lash out at anyone who was actually trying to help me because of how i felt. i just felt like whats the point so i turned everyone away who did care and was trying to help support me when i needed them the most , but because how i was feeling i was like a horse with the blinkers on , not seeing the bigger pitcher. Just feeling like everything was over. The voice that followed me around in my mind was just constantly telling me don’t bother and to give up. Then i thought to myself , just sat here feeling sorry for myself and listening to it will not help me progress , it’ll just knock me back. So i sat thinking what’s best for me.

What I Did

I usually went to bed sometimes 1:30am+

Drink high amounts of Red “Coca Cola” so high caffeine intake

Didn’t move around as much as i should and wasn’t as active

I used to have sometimes 5/6 absence seizures in a day

What I Changed

I set a alarm 12:30pm and go to bed

Now i only drink Coke Zero which is Zero Sugar lower Caffeine intake

When going to the shops i walk instead

Since doing that they dropped to 1 or 2 a week

Stopped Just sitting around feeling sorry for myself
