Avi Ban, 38, Holon

I’m an epileptic, which is essentially an unseen disability. On the one hand, it opens up new worlds but it also boxes you in like a kind of secret. For a long time I felt the disability was an obstacle preventing me from achieving my ambitions, especially in relationships. I went through difficult times in relationships when I felt the connection was broken because my partner could not contain my epileptic fits. That all changed when I got to the point in life where the penny dropped – not only do I have a disability, the disability also has me. That was the point at which I succeeded not only in containing my disability but also seeing it as an ability. Since then, I’m in a much stronger place, I accept who I am and believe everyone can be at peace with themselves. Today, the epilepsy is not something that limits me, on the contrary, it’s a special empowering ability that contributes to every relationship and to creating intimacy with a partner.
