I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was at school. At first it was controlled by medication but I still told no one about my condition due to the fear that people would treat me differently. However as I got to the end of my school years my condition worsened. My seizures returned. My medication no longer worked and I was constantly changing drugs to try and improve the situation. During this time I failed university and lost a number of jobs. Many of the drugs for epilepsy have side effects and these would affect my concentration and memory. I even lost a job as a simple shelf stacker! Luckily, thanks to the help of the Epilepsy Society I was able to get extra help and advice on my condition which many doctors did not have access to. I also managed to get seen by specialists who diagnosed my condition properly and have managed to get my epilepsy under control again. I am very grateful for the charity and everyting they do and so I have decided to do a skydive to try and raise money for them.
Please support my skydive and try and give all you can to the charity. Please dont forget to gift aid your donation if you are a taxpayer. Many, many thanks!
Although obviously gutted that I can't do the dive I hope to do it sometime next year. I also hope to do something else for epilepsy in the meantime when I have thought of something :o)
BAD NEWS - My doctors have said that I'm not yet in a position to do my skydive. This has left me with no choice but to cancel the dive. Obviously I am gutted. Thanks everyone for your support. ALL SPONSORSHIP WILL BE RETURNED ASAP.
