My name is Sacha. I am 21 and I am current studying at University. I was diagnosed with epilepsy at 15 and have tonic clonic, myoclonic jumps and absence seizures. I have never been completely controlled, however I have had long periods of time without tonic clonic seizures. I am still trying different drugs and dosages. I am really passionate about spreading awareness of epilepsy and making sure there is the best possible support for young people.
