Hello again!

It's been a long time since I've dropped by. I think of CWE often.

I had some updates I wanted to share -

1. I finally got my drivers license - the first time I've been able to drive alone since 2001.
2. I'm free of TC seizures for 4.25 years now!
3. I'm currently President of our Provincial Epilepsy Association in Manitoba, we're doing our best to raise awareness and help people.
4. Our province has committed to invest $4 million toward expanding Winnipeg’s adult epilepsy monitoring unit, we're hopeful for the future.

Life has come a long way, and the years seem to fly by the older we get! When joined CWE things were very tough for me. My seizures were horrific and my life was turned upside down. 2008-2017 was a very dark and difficult time. So many of you here helped me get through that time, I don't think I could have otherwise. There are so many, and I don't know who is here anymore, but @Nakamova, @Bernard, @Meetz1064, @Cint, @RobinN, @CQ:) , and so so many others - thank you. I'll always remember what you did for me.

You were all the comfort when I needed a hug, a friendly ear when I needed to vent, and helped to motivate me when I needed a push in the right direction.

Thank you all :)

Hi Chris,
That is wonderful news. I'm teaching college students about epilepsy twice a yr. I sure wish the world
knew more about epilepsy. We have to get out there and make people realize that it's nothing to be
afraid of. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!
