My grades dropped from As to Fs because I was missing the information from either seizures during class, or from skipping class due to a seizure. Making it through middle school was a miracle. Entering high school though was no walk in the park either. I was put in the easiest math class offered because of how much I struggled in middle school. I was using blocks to learn positive and negative numbers. This just lowered my confidence and made me feel stupid. I knew that I wasn’t at the level my friends were at but I didn’t need blocks either.
Studying for tests was stressful as it was, the stress would cause seizures, and in the end I would take home a test that had a D written in red on it. It made me feel like I was incapable of showing the information I know. Same goes with speaking in front of the class. It’s SCARY. A couple of times I presented in front of my teachers and a few classmates instead of a whole class. Less stress, less seizures, and a presentation I could feel good about,
because you really just don’t feel good about any work you turn in. It’s late, or the answer is wrong. Not because you weren’t paying attention, but because you missed the information due to seizures.
