An article by our collaborator Irene Tarragó

Many are convinced that life is something that can be controled, and there is a controllable percentage of life, but another is not. What we can regulate is our mood, our disposition to any surprise that life gives us.

Me, like many of you who read this, I was surprised by life with epilepsy and I could choose between feeling unfortunate, seeing myself as weird, thinking that I could do nothing, locking myself in my house… Or adapting and knowing epilepsy and see how we could get along. And I chose to accept it.

What we can regulate is our mood

I chose to accept epilepsy getting to know it and see how we could get along

I am indeed among the privileged 80% who controls their seizures with medication and can lead a normal life. That’s why I feel committed and I feel it is an obligation to show my face, fight for people with this disease, for the stigma that we still carry, so we keep investigating to find a solution to those non-operable and drug-resistant epilepsies. Public institutions have forgotten us.

That’s why today I wanted to inform you that I have pledged my position as Vocal Vecina in the City Council of Madrid, in the District of Hortaleza. I will not tell you the political party, to not politicize the matter. But I do promise that, from that small step that I just climbed, I will continue to face this disease. It doesn’t matter who accomplishes things. The important thing is to get them. And, in these new times when everything will need to be done by pacts, it has less relevance. You have to leave the old idea of ​​politics and learn to play as a team.

Also, I take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and an extraordinary 2020.
