- My Story
Who you are: My name is Victoria others know me as 'Vicky' am 22 and female
Who (or what) you're raising money for: I am wanting to raise money for young epilepsy action as I hope they is a cure out their somewhere for my condition and others that suffer from different kinds of epilepsy.
Why this means so much to you: People who know me know how much I get scared of my condition one minuite I could be fine the next I could be on the floor in the recovery postion with no warning it scares me so much. I have sleep deprivation epilepsy which means it's mostly caused by tiredness and stress. I was at my school prom six years ago and i had a strange feeling it was just a really big camera flash as i was getting my picture done and everything went black. I thought nothing about it and six months down the line I was having a seizure 'fit' in the back of my father's car and woke up to been in the ambulance and on my way to A&E. The seizure that has scared me the most was having a 'fit' in the bus stop just as the bus was pulling in to pick up passengers, luckily they was people around who could help me.
How thankful you will be: I would be so thankful for people to help me out and reach my target so I can go on to do different things, this means so much to me as my older sister has tonic-clonic seizure's. I got told that I would be able to drive but i could end up killing someone if I was to have a seizure at the car wheel so I would rather stay safe, am not aloud to live on my own just incase something happens and also when I eventually have my own family the doctor said it could maybe passed down to my children and thats was scares me the most.
