ANSWERS FOR KIDS




How will you handle epilepsy when you go away to college?







Jennifer:

When I go away for the rest of the college years, I’ll have everything with me hopefully. I’ll try to rent a dorm, but I don’t know how that will work out. I’ll still try to take care of myself. I’ve been taking care of myself with the meds since I was 13. I know how to control my meds. I know how to do all of that. I know how to work everything. It’s really easy of me to do all of that by myself.
