My Story - Daniel Close

Tuesday 19th Sep
Recently, I had my first seizure in 3.5 years. This had been the longest period seizure free since being diagnosed with epilepsy in 2012. The physical recovery is one element, though the mental recovery is underestimated and an ever present challenge for epilepsy sufferers - depression, shame, loneliness and isolation are all potential side effects - some of these I've faced before and during the recovery of my most recent seizure. 

I consider myself one of the lucky ones. It's heartbreaking to know of epileptics who face major challenges controlling their seizures on a daily basis. 

This October, I'll be participating in the Walk for Epilepsy and clocking up the KMs throughout the month. There will be a 25km run completed on October 15, representing the 1 in 25 Australians diagnosed with epilepsy in their lifetime. Running is a major passion of mine and has played a significant role in my mental and physical health in dealing with my epilepsy diagnosis.
