I have a rare type of epilepsy (as well as many other med problems)

I have a rare type of epilepsy that is a mixture of juvenile, tonic and tonic-clonic epilepsy. No medication has been found yet that works to prevent these seizures.
I also have type 1 diabetes, hydrocephalus, low blood pressure and was born 8 weeks premature with exomphalous.

Explanations of my conditions
Diabetes - Inability of the panncreas to produce insulin
Hydrocephalus - Fluid build-up on the brain
Low blood pressure - (needs no explanation)
Exomphalous - Born with the organs on the outside of the body (my small intestines, part of my stomach and my liver were on the outside of my body).
