Dating Disasters and Epilepsy

When I was a teen I fell down, walked into walls, bumped into virtually everything in my path, and almost drowned in the shower.

So, you can imagine what a disaster dating was.

Of course, in my infinite wisdom, I would never tell my dates that I had epilepsy. 

My parents wouldn’t even utter the word, so rather than become a pariah, I kept my mouth shut.

Bad idea…

Suddenly, you’re feeling edgy.

Lashing out at loved ones for no reason at all.

It’s not anybody’s fault. It’s that old familiar enemy.

Epilepsy. Again.

Why me? Why now?

It’s not fair.

When did you find out that you had epilepsy?

How?

What did you do after being diagnosed? 

How do you cope with it now?
