I decided to name my blog Ardent Journeys because I feel that life with epilepsy is a life full of journeys. Having epilepsy myself, I have discovered it has had a huge impact in making me the person I am today. I look after my health, have empathy for other people’s health and wellbeing, and appreciate all the support that I have ever received.
However, don’t want to have epilepsy viewed as a negative aspect of life that holds people back, stops them from achieving their dreams, and I don’t want people to be afraid to have to tell anyone that they have epilepsy for fear of that person’s judgement or reaction.
I hope that not only will I be able to post positive stories about my journey through epilepsy, but I also want to raise awareness and educate other people about epilepsy.
