This isn’t a post relating to my main topic of Asian dramas or Kpop at all. This is in fact a very personal post. It will be under my “Personal/Related To Me” Category and there may be more coming your way during the course of my university life.
I am doing this because I think it will be a good for me to have somewhere to express myself.
So, I have a form of epilepsy which they don’t know the cause, the trigger or basically anything… helpful I know.
I have only had 4 seizures in my life, however, 3 of them were in the space of 6 months. And one was during a lecture in my first stint at University. This caused me to become rather anxious and so I gained social anxiety.
Yesterday, in one of my lectures, the Lecturer told us she had a brain tumour. Of course, I was not expecting that at all and frankly I felt kind of uncomfortable. However, the way she was so enthusiastic, engaging and cheerful really inspired me.
Now, after one day of feeling inspired my anxiety has not magically disappeared, but I do find it so astonishing and uplifting that this person, who has this medical condition and could have fits while teaching, is still able to stand up and teach. I find it amazing!
It makes me feel like I can do anything and that medical conditions should not bind you to the ground. Things are achievable if you set your mind to it and keep a positive outlook.
It really does make me want to achieve so much and explore my passions in life as much as possible.
I can’t wait to be taught by such an amazing woman and continue to be inspired by her bravery and positivity.
