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: 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”

I have a hole in my head. What’s your excuse?

There’s a hole in my head. There’s a hollow place in my temporal lobe. A faulty memory, after surgery was a nuisance. Yet, I find myself three years later a better Einstein. There’s less brain matter in my head. And there’s more space for my cerebrum to wiggle. But I find myself with more intellect thanContinue reading “I have a hole in my head. What’s your excuse?”

Monday Reflections: Not Again

They say with age you get wiser, and through those years, you’ll learn from your mistakes. I guess I haven’t. When I was seven, my parents were expanding the house. I should have known that construction and nails come hand in hand, but I was a kid; and it was summer.  It was just 85 degrees, which is very good weather considering hot Texas summers.Continue reading “Monday Reflections: Not Again”

Monday Reflections: Almost Empty

For the past year, my neurologist has been weaning me off of my Keppra. Today marks two-weeks since I last took those oblong, white pills. I look at my pillbox to find it’s almost empty. Little plastic boxes aren’t filled to capacity anymore. It’s hard to believe they’re almost gone because I never thought thisContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Almost Empty”

Monday Reflections: I am Groot!

It’s Monday again! So who is ready to start off the new week and let go of the weekend? Sadly, I know several of us aren’t, but it’s okay. We just need to remind ourselves that there is a new week ahead of us, and we can make it even better than the one before. If you’re not sure what toContinue reading “Monday Reflections: I am Groot!”

Monday Reflections

Weekends are fun and relaxing. When Monday comes along, we remind ourselves we’re not children, but all grown up. I know it would be wonderful to sit in a tiny pool and play all day, but adults can’t do that. Mondays are for stepping out of the baby pool and taking a dive to swim in theContinue reading “Monday Reflections”

Monday Reflections: Six Months Seizure Free

  To: My very own Hidden Disorder For the longest time, you controlled me. You held on tightly and wouldn’t let me be. Six months ago today, I made a choice. And I now no longer hear your voice. Our friendly fights are over. There is now a sense of closure. My friendly enemy, it’sContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Six Months Seizure Free”
