Hi Everyone!

I’m Caitlin, I like writing, drawing, painting, music, the sunshine, I love helping people and I have epilepsy. I’m 15 and I’ve had seizures since I was 2 (so that’s 13 years if you feel like doing the math). I decided to make this website because I think it’s really important to know that even though you have epilepsy, it doesn’t separate you from people or change who you are. Whether it’s a big part of your life or a small part of your life. Whether you yourself have seizures every day or seizures once a year. Or maybe you don’t even have epilepsy at all but somebody you love does! It doesn’t make you a worse person, it doesn’t make you a better one. It’s just part of who you are. Yaaaay!
