What's Next For Me,



In this moment I am in with this life I have has been an outstanding new chance to improve my relationship with myself and the things I have broken which I am in the process of healing. This leave I have been on and soul searching I have done has been amazing. It's been allot of hard work and I have faced challenges that I would have walked away before in the passed but I am finding myself able to face and handle them and close chapters of things to move forward.

This life of serenity has become a blessing each any every single day. The love that surrounds me and my children are all that I need. I am blessed with them in my life. I have been seizure free for 2 months now and it's been amazing. Along the way of becoming healthier mentally and physically I have found things to become more clear and able to resolve conflicts I have had by accepting them. I have also lost more weight and feel physically better as days past. I return to work in a week and I am looking forward to that. I am a little nervous about it, but at the same time I get to take things as they come and get back on track with my life and concentrate on my career and provide for myself and my children. 

I still have so much work ahead of me and I am gradually taking things as they come and I know that I am only getting stronger. I know my meds for my epilepsy are working well and I hope to continue seizure free and in 4 months if I am still seizure free I can get my license back and be able to have a more reliable way of getting around even if I have to rent a car occasionally to get around or go visit my children. But I know that's still some time off and I have to concentrate on today. 

I never thought I would end up where I am at right now at the age of 34, but in all reality, I am grateful just to be alive after all the hell I caused. It's a glorious feeling to be in recovery and have the support to manage a better life and feel God working in me. 

I don't know what tomorrow will bring, or tomorrow morning, or next weekend, but I know right now, at this moment, I am ok, content, and grateful. Today I am doing the best I can and I am at ease with that for once in my life. :)

3 Weeks

Hey folks, I am happy to announce that I am 3 weeks of being seizure free with has been a god send. its been the longest in a very long time and seems like the medicationss I am on are working now and I am doing great.

This year I am participating in the Sharon Ride Walk Run 2013 even in San Diego event again and am very excited about it. Team Barton raised over $7500 last year towards Epilepsy and I couldn't be happier. Due to some unforeseen medical issues, I was unable to attend the LA even in October of last year but understand that team mates of mine showed up in my behalf to support the cause and myself and I am very thank for that.



This year due to time restrictions our goal is to raise $1500 and I believe that we can accomplish this goal. I ask that you do what you can to participate in any manner by joining the team, sharing this info with friends or family or making a small donation to achieve this goal. This charity raises money for research for children with epilepsy to attend camp to get the proper help they need to get treatment for their level for Epilepsy. I am not just an advocate of Epilepsy, but I too have Epilepsy and was diagnosed with it in November 2012 and still deal with it day to day. I pray daily with hope for a cure for this condition to ride this from our future generations to come into this world to not have to worry about living with this condition as allot of us adults due. Please share this in your local community's to spread the awareness and help in any manner to help for this cause. My Team Barton needs your plead-ages and donations to reach our goal to our commitment of raising funds to continue treatment and provide clinical treatment for youth and a new way of living for our future leaders.
