Ramadhan Duvela: Please keep your sympathy, give me acceptance instead

What you need to know:

  • My name is Ramadhan Duvela Nyongesa.
  • I’m thirty years old, and I am a professional photographer.
  • Most people call me Ramsey. My earliest memory of epilepsy is from when I was seven years – that is the first seizure I can recall.

Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice. I cannot control how people react towards me; I can only control how I act. Understanding those two things was very important for me as a person living with epilepsy. It helped me deal with the stigma I received due to my condition.
