It wasn’t something that came on gradually, it was something that I had ever since I was born, or maybe even when I was still in the womb. I had to put up with constant bullying because they thought it would be funny to pick on the girl that stared off into space, (Like Luna Lovegood from ‘Harry Potter). I listened to the song, ‘How To Save a Life’ a lot of times during those years, and sometimes, when you find the right music to listen to, it can lighten up your entire day, or even a week.
I used to have them every six weeks, (not even medication could fix what I have) and sometimes even grand mals. (The type people stereotype people having when they think of seizures). Until last year. Something happened, and I started having Non-Epileptic fits 25 and sometimes even to 45 times a day. I was going from doctor to doctor, doing blood draws, and countless EEG’s, Cat Scans, & MRI’s. They hurt, to be blunt. A month ago I finally found a great doctor and the seizures have been reduced to 2 or 3 seizures a day. (And grand mals every month or two around the same time). During the time period that I was having these seizures, I didn’t let them stop me. I would let my brain glitch, and then go back to whatever I was doing, no matter how tired I had become. My work paid off, and now my book, ‘Just the Way It Is’ is soon to be released into the black pit that is known as London. (Just kidding, I was channeling my inner Sweeney Todd). My seizures didn’t stop my life, in fact, they made it even better. I will always have seizures, but they don’t have me.
