About 18 years ago, when I was 11 years old, I had a cerebral hemorhage. I don't know what caused it. My doctor thought it was just a freak accident. Since then, I have been taking Dilantin (Seizure medication), they said since that happened I could be prone to having seizures. I am now having some medical problems, like falling a lot and seriously bad headaches. I am going to a Neurologist concerning this and had an EEG yesterday and I am scheduled to have a MRI and MRA Thursday. I was just wondering if anyone has any story like mine. My doctor told me I was a miracle!! They never expected me to come out of my coma and survive. When I did come out of my coma they said I would be blind and paralyzed. But they were wrong. I did have to learn to walk, talk, everything again, but I was alive. Please I would really love to hear similar stories.
