my sister (NunaNoodle) has dravet syndrome, which is a rare form of epilepsy. shes had her seizures since she was just a few months old but!! yay! shes on a new mad and doing amazing! this december we will celebrate 500 days seizure free!
Her condition still affects her a lot though. She doesn't act so normal, but she doesn't mind so I don't mind.

alSOOOOOO! my seizures r not caused by flashing lights!! (well except fluorescent ones). flashing lights being the only thing to cause seizures is a common misconception. fun fact
