“Time Out” | May 11, 2018

I’ll be off the web from Friday 5/11 — Wednesday 5/16, spending some quality “together time” with my niece.

I’m sorry if any of my responses are delayed.

Please take care of one another.

I’ll be thinking of you…

  3. I recently read that someone with Epilepsy wanted to have “I am an epileptic” tattooed on themselves, any thoughts on this one?

  4. All of us need a GOOD TIME OUT, not only when we’re unconscious / time out from a grand mal seizure.

  10. Have any of my friend out there have family member tell you that you blame them for your illness. I was diagnosis at age 48 and know nobody can fix it. I was just wondering if any one have had family who just cant except your seizures or look them up.

    • Unfortunately many of us are in the same boat.

      My mother wouldn’t even say the “E” word and treated me like a pariah.

      But somehow I made it through with grit and determination.

      Try to find a support group. Surround yourself with positive friends who accept you as you are.
