A whole year seizure free, 365 days. This isn't the blog I wrote originally, this isn't the post I agonised over for days. This is the post written on my phone laying in a hotel bed the night before I can finally say I am a year seizure free.
I have tried to write this so many times, in so many ways over the last few weeks, but what has ended up on the page has been a total jumble. In many ways it is a very clear reflection of my mind when it comes to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and trying to process the events of my pregnancy with Noah. This blog is my experience, what has helped me and how PTSD has affected our lives, as ever I can only speak about how it has been for us, and as we discovered PTSD is very personal to each individual. Four years ago today I had a seizure and fell down tube station stairs, the events of that day have set me on a path I neither want to be on or know how to handle.So today I've decided to talk about realising that I had a problem and how I went about getting help, hoping it shows others they are not alone, others opening up to me saved me and I hope someone else takes comfort from this.
