Happy 3rd Birthday to me! I can’t quite believe I am writing that, I always maintain that I never believed anyone other than my friends may read the blog; turns out I was wrong. The older posts pop up on Timehop and it takes me back to time and places now that seem like a distant memory, it also helps me remember times that the epilepsy was so awful it affected my memory of that period. It reminds me of the darker days and makes me take stock and remember how lucky I am, it also reminds me the absolute highs the last three years have brought. The highest of them all being Noah.
As I write this I have been 8 weeks seizure free today, 8 whole weeks!! It won’t seem like much to many but to me it is an eternity. Once upon a time it wouldn’t have meant much to me either, but after having lost control of my epilepsy for the last three years these 8 weeks, 8 precious weeks mean the world to me.
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.
