Life is On!
– Rakhi Khandelwal
My first born – Siddhesh – is an epilepsy patient. He was born without any complications. In school, he was active and spent his childhood in the care of his babysitters since both me and my husband were working individuals.
One winter morning, when Siddhesh was down with cold and cough, he started jerking in his sleep. I was in a shock. I didn’t know what to do and hence, just kept watching him. Even after this episode, I was unaware about epilepsy and seizures. I immediately rushed to an ayurvedic doctor but nothing worked.
Meanwhile, I started researching on epilepsy online & got to know many things about it. One day, I found the Samman group, and I feel grateful to Samman group for the support. Through this association, I learnt that there are many epileptic achievers in the group.
Now, it’s been almost 8-9 years, Siddhesh is living his life with epilepsy. The saddeest thing of all is that we cannot send him anywhere alone as he gets seizures anytime, anywhere. But we live life as it comes – “Life is still on.”
