I’m alone. I’m in company with myself. My thoughts, my consciousness are my only companions. Between these four walls, I’m isolated from the life I used to live. I’m removed from what was and what will never be. In this place, change is nowhere to be found. Everyday is the same, constant. Each Cloned DayContinue reading “Monday Reflections: Epilepsy Visualized”

Monday Reflections: One Moment
One moment is all it takes for your life to change. One moment is all it takes for your heart to break. In one moment, your mind painfully takes over. In one moment, your body seizes and loses control. Overtime, you’ll come to feel lonely and defeated. Overtime, you’ll regain some normalcy and hope. AndContinue reading “Monday Reflections: One Moment”
Let’s Walk to END EPILEPSY!
I’m participating in the Walk to END EPILEPSY, and I want to invite you to support me in helping raise funds for the Epilepsy Foundation of Texas.

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: 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 wake up to a sunrise, but inside it feels like a sunset. It’s not the soft, golden kind. It’s more of a melancholy blue. I said I wouldn’t let the monster in my head win, but some days the struggle is just so difficult.
My Epilepsy Journey…updated
I’ve left this blog abandoned for far too long. Life has a way of passing by so quickly. If it wasn’t for the change of green leaves to red, yellow and orange, we might just forget what season we’re in. As Purple Day approaches, I thought I’d revisit and update my epilepsy journey. After all,Continue reading “My Epilepsy Journey…updated”
