Catch Up

A year ago today I had my very first seizure. In case you have missed something or you’re just starting to read now, here are some of the major things that have happened in my life over the past year:
November 19th I began having seizures which continued to get bigger and more frequent until April when I was diagnosed with non-epileptic seizures. The seizures were supposed to go away on their own within a few weeks of the diagnosis (but have yet to stop).
In June, I finally told my mom about the awful thoughts that had tormented me for 11 years. June 14th I was diagnosed with OCD and began the process of finding the right medications and treatments.
In July, I was accepted to bible college thinking that I could audit courses while continuing with mental health treatments. I eventually came to the conclusion that it would be too risky to add the extra stressors to my life and made the difficult decision to put school on hold for a while.
Mid-July, I became severely depressed. Between July 23rd and October 16th I had 3 hospital admissions for psychiatric care. I spent 66 out of those 102 days in hospital.
I have now been home for a month…but that does not mean I am better. In fact some days are worse, but we have made changes that have allowed me to stay safe in my home.
