Nikolas Ortiz

When Nikolas was just over a year old, he had what at the time been diagnosed as a “Febrile” seizure. This seizure event was followed by two additional seizures by the age of two. The fact that he had three seizures triggered a series of tests, which led to him being diagnosed with Generalized Epilepsy and initiated an anti seizure medication plan.

After living life with epilepsy, after trying every medicine available (without much success), I had three brain surgeries at age 38. With surgery, mymemory of my past was take from me and my fear door was completely opened. With my seizures gone, what happened was just as difficult to personally start my life over again.
