Lizzy is currently in a really good place and I put a lot of it down to viewing her as a whole child. I have put together a graph to show how uncontrolled epilepsy can impact so many areas of your child’s life. Sometimes we just focus on the seizures and forget that there may be other things affecting our children that need to be investigated or questioned.
When we started doing this we realised the full gravity of the impact Lizzies epilepsy and other developmental issues were having on her. The graph shows all the areas we identified so we knew what areas we had to work on. The list contains the areas and questions I wish I had of known to think about and I hope they help you like they have helped our family.
Our children are not just Epilepsy they are a little human with all the quirks and intricacies that we have. We view ourselves as a whole and we should view our children in the same way when dealing with a health condition like Epilepsy.
Some of these areas may not affect your child or may affect your child more significantly than what I have discussed. In turn that means you may have many more areas to create questions that need to answered. You also may have done a lot of the things and if you have your a bloody legend. Love and Strength being sent to you all.
