An Anonymous Story

I have both epilepsy and Arnold Chiari malformation type 1.  The epilepsy is controlled by Tegretol.  I have a tremendous amount of pain from the ACM.

I get headaches all the time, neck and back pain.  I used to like drawing but I shake too much from the pain.  I can’t lift anything over 10 pounds.  I was upset with knowing I have the ACM, but have gotten used to it now.  I used to like running when I was younger; I just walk now.

    Your perspective is refreshing. I appreciate that you have adjusted to your limitations without sounding bitter. I too have limitations, but keep looking forward. Keep up the great attitude.
