Epilepsy is much like the weather. It’s unpredictable and always changing. A sunny, 85 degree morning can quickly turn into a 58 degree with scattered thunderstorms afternoon. With epilepsy, you can never predict what will happen next. You prepare for a picnic. Lightning strikes, and you have to watch the latest documentary on Netflix.

Monday Reflections: Finding Yourself
The atmosphere is but a blank canvas. Color exists only in the form of charcoal grays. I’m standing in the middle of nowhere where the mountains are my only companions. I tip toe across this rocky terrain hoping not to fall through the cracks. In this place, I’m searching for the girl I used toContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Finding Yourself”
Monday Reflections: Monday Blues
I hold my breath and close my eyes hoping the pain will come and go. I try to go on as if it was just another day. There is no denying that the sunset has left and the sunrise has followed. It is another day, but it’s another day without you here. When I readContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Monday Blues”
Monday Reflections: Music is all we need.
Doop doop doop du doop Swoosh swoosh swoosh… zing! La la la la di di daaaa Plink plunk plink plunk Snap Snap Snap … Boom! Oooo Ooooo Oooooo It doesn’t matter what melodies you listen to. Music can make you laugh, smile and even cry. Just listen to whatever feels right.
Monday Reflections: Time
Time does not yield, much less stop. It’s always moving It’s always passing. Time isn’t something we can hold onto. It isn’t tangible. It isn’t reversible. Time doesn’t tell us how much we’ve been given. It could be today or tomorrow. It could be years from now. Time is a mystery so we should liveContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Time”
Monday Reflections: Silver Linings
When your thoughts become overcrowded, remember there is a silver lining behind each dark cloud. When the hefty storms leave you feeling like a weeping willow, remember the tempest will leave behind a beautiful rainbow. At times, the world will seem overwhelming. At times, everything will be overbearing. But when you feel like you’re atContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Silver Linings”
Monday Reflections: The Beast Within
How do you live with a monster in your head? How do you continue when it tries to knock you dead? I’ve found myself caught between two worlds. There’s the easygoing Dr. Jekyll. And there’s the frightening Mrs. Hyde. Jekyll and Hyde. Which one really am I? I can’t control the latter. I want toContinue reading “Monday Reflections: The Beast Within”
Monday Reflections: Why must weekends end?
Melodic sounds of Bach and Mozart hum through my ears. The aroma of fresh, hot coffee fills the air. It’s a slow morning, much like all Mondays are. One wishes weekends could be long-lasting. One wishes we could have slept just a bit longer. But weekdays have a way of getting here before expected. IContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Why must weekends end?”
Monday Reflections: The Battle of the Youngest
Being the youngest has it’s advantages, but it definitely has it’s disadvantages, too. This is something I wrote a decade ago, but fitting for National Sibling’s Day. Although my siblings gave me more headaches than I could count growing up, I wouldn’t change them for anything in the world. They’ve always been there for me throughContinue reading “Monday Reflections: The Battle of the Youngest”
Monday Reflections: Epilepsy has nothing on my growing epilepsy fam!
It happened again. The silent stare and painful convulsions. My morning started with a simple cup of joe, but ended with a trip to the ER. Epilepsy, my dear old friend, sure missed me these past three years and came back to end my one month seizure free streak. In a weird way, I’m not disappointed thatContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Epilepsy has nothing on my growing epilepsy fam!”
