There was an article posted about a month or so ago on Themighty.com where 13 people were asked to describe living with epilepsy.
Here are their takes:
“It’s like having an earthquake going on inside your head, with the epicenter always in the same spot. The only question is the magnitude and how far it will be felt.” — Cindy Platt Hanlon
I can mostly relate to all of these descriptions. I've been pouting the last two weeks. I posted this article and my following submission to Facebook today. I thought i'd feel better, but i just feel pathetic. I didn't mean to be negative, but i'm pissed off at epilepsy. Fuck this shit. Iknowiknowiknow there are worse things. And Lord knows i've been off pretending like i'm a normal person practically. But here i am again. In all my freakshow splendor. (Forgive me fellow people with epilepsy, and/or loved ones with epilepsy; I, personally feel like a fucking freakshow.) Ya no real progress on the being-equipped-for-this-shit front either.
