When I was diagnosed with epilepsy later in life, while my kids were young, it posed numerous challenges and limitations. Initially, it was tough to accept, but I eventually discovered ways to adapt. For those familiar with epilepsy, they understand that it can be a challenging journey with obstacles and setbacks along the way. Thankfully, with the assistance of skilled doctors and the appropriate medication, we were able to gain control over my seizures. Aside from my family and close friends, my art has always been there for me. These photos are pieces I have created while navigating my new obstacles.
