During today’s vendor event, I happened to meet an adolescent female who has been diagnosed with seizure disorder. She was recently treated for increased seizures, after an extended period of no significant disease activity.
I shared that I, too, have a condition with symptoms that come and go. I did not specifically mention that I have relapsing-remitting MS. I like to take advantage of opportunities to share my personal experiences with chronic illness, with the hope of validating someone else’s experience of persistent health challenges.
