If your daughter has epilepsy...

Lucid
     When I have seizures while medicated, I remember more.      That's what happened just now. The seizures are much shorter, I don't blink my eyes a lot during the "deepest part" because I don't go there, and I can follow my thoughts while seizing.      M...

Halftime Show
     I feel her watching me before I open my eyes. Did her bladder wake me up, or did my seizures wake her up?      I can never really tell, for sure.      Sometimes, but not often, I wake up while one is fading away.      Usually, I don't even think about ...

Special, too
     My drug holiday is about to end with a brand spanking new potion from the vault. We should've picked it up yesterday at the hospital instead of coming home, but I'm glad we didn't.      That's how weird I am.      I was more than happy to have it fille...

Shocking, isn't it?
     I would undergo electroshock therapy if it could help control my seizures without medication. The idea comes from a book about a news anchor who suddenly went blank on the air. She was diagnosed with depression or bipolar, I can't remember which.      ...

     Art Alexakis sang to me during my most recent seizure, minutes ago.      I was editing my earlier post, which I do even after publishing, sometimes. They never feel quite good enough to share, but I do anyway.      When I read the part about my kinderg...

Just enough
     Yes, I was scared.      It wasn't Petrified scared or Shell-Shocked scared.      It was No Going Back Now scared, like the day Ronnie was born.      I was thrilled when the doctor said, "We're admitting you."      But then, I remembered how much it hur...

Wait Until Dark
     It was the one movie we all watched together every year, in the dark...on the floor, because it was so scary.      There was even a part where my mom jumped and squealed, which didn't usually happen when we watched T.V.      I was little, five, maybe, ...

Postictal
     I'm postictal, which means I just had another seizure...minutes ago.      It wasn't anything to write home about, not like the one yesterday that caused me to lean my head back and smile into the sunshine like Steve Wonder in the middle of a tune.     ...

Up in the Clouds
     It's 2002. I just went up in a hot air balloon, one of my childhood dreams come true. My husband was with me. I think we drank champagne up there, but I can't quite remember for sure.      If so, it must've felt naughty, even at that age, because my pa...
