At the age of 14 my life took an unforeseen turn. I was standing at a red light. The next thing I remember was waking up in the hospital. Nobody really knew what was going on and I was diagnosed with a circulation problem related to puberty. Two weeks later I passed out again – this time in the presence of my shocked father. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that I’d just had been hit with epilepsy. The diagnose was confirmed by a neurologist one day later.
