I have been gritting my teeth of late as I have watched sales rep after sales rep claim that Juice Plus can help medical conditions, gain world peace, solve world hunger and stop natural disasters (ok the last few bits may be an exaggeration on my part but that’s what it feels like). I have watched time and time again as these Reps with no (or very little) medical knowledge claim this product is safe for those with epilepsy, that it can or is proven to help or decrease your seizures, safe for those who are pregnant and can help a number of other medical conditions. REALLY????
I don’t even really know where to start with this blog post because I have so much I want to include but at the same time I haven’t had enough about me to put pen to paper. I did intend to cover my latest neurology appointment but as I have written this the before bit has ended way longer than I intended. I’ve realised that I haven’t given a general overview of our life recently and life has been a rollercoaster of late so I will do my best to cover it all.
I found out in October 2014 I was expecting my first child, what followed was a rollercoaster of a pregnancy, mainly because I suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum and also because I happen to have epilepsy. I have composed a list of 5 things pregnant women with epilepsy want you to know…
My names Faye, mostly known for being a tea addict and keen runner and swimmer. I'm 32, married and I had my 1st child in June 2015, oh and I also happen to have epilepsy. This is my story of Pregnancy, Motherhood & Epilepsy.
