- I'm an ESL and Visual Arts teacher, a translator, a writer and a lover of peace, truth, life and beauty. I have been fighting and overcoming different chronic illnesses since 1999 when I was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor. Words like Cushing's, hypothyroidism then Hashimoto's, metabolic syndrome and recently generalized postictal epilepsy ,pineal calcification and cortical atrophy have been very real to me.......I have won many battles and have lost a few but I do plan to finish the marathon of life in triumph and helping others, I expect to reach the finish line that´s been already traced for me by God's finger. Philippians 3:13-14 Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

marathon of life: Surviving a brain tumor

Marathon of life: Finding out about Epylepsy
At least I knew what was attacking my body I knew what was happening yet it was so painful. Thyrotoxic episodes were exacerbating seizures.
In patients with established epilepsy (including generalized epilepsy syndromes), seizures and paroxysmal abnormalities can be exacerbated by hyperthyroidism In other patients, focal or generalized seizures occur only during thyrotoxic episodes. Seizure exacerbations usually remit when patients become euthyroid with treatment.

"A heart set on pilgrimage requires gratitude and humbleness"
Flowers and ferocious thorns are the outcome of extending oneself beyond one´s confort zone.
My heart is full of gratefulness and the humbleness process continues.
