My Story

I was diagnosed with a brain injury and epilepsy when I was thirteen. The doctors said it was because I'd had too much anasthetic, too often.

My parents didn't want me to do much, they kept me down. But I did things anyway.

I couldn't get a job, nobody would hire me because of the epilepsy. I did work on the farm though. I also couldn't get a driver's license.

I got married, and had three kids.

Two of my children live close to me, and they help out alot. They give me rides.

One of my sisters helps me out too.

I started attending a brain injury program eight years ago, and I really like it.
