My name is Tiffany.  I’ve lived with epilepsy for over 10 years, having survived a seizure-car crash.  I’d been married for only four months at this time.  After diagnosis, I had to stop working, my husband and I lost our home, and had to begin our lives all over again.  Inspired by this tragedy, we […]

I was 18-months-old when I had my first seizure.  It was during a very high fever, so considered a febrile seizure, but it was a seizure nonetheless.  My father was a doctor who had been a front line medic in World World II, but, the story goes, he completely lost his cool when I had […]

Self-Love is the regard for one’s own well-being and happiness (chiefly considered as a desirable rather than narcissistic characteristic).  Self-love is not a bad thing when we do it correctly… In life, many women and girls do not love themselves whether it is from the pressures of society or from the pain of our pasts.  We […]
