    I Still Haven't Shed My Last Tear for him...

    ...Don't think I ever will. I wasn't always happy to see him. I didn't always agree with what he was saying. He was the sort of bloke who narrow-minded snobs wouldn't dare take a second look at, and it would often take a fair deal of patience to weave through his stubborn ways...

    I Never Knew - At First

    When I was in high school, I became acquainted, through mutual friends, a girl who was a sophomore, like me. Her name was Linda, and she was open and friendly - very much so. She was a bit outspoken but that was okay with me. I met up with her one early afternoon at our...

    His Name...

    Is Barnaby. What an awesome name right? Well, he has seizures every night before bed. I feel bad for him, but he said he got used to it. So at night, he would sit and wait for them to come on. I watched once and it was pretty scary for me. I dont know how he manages to...

    No Movie Dates For Us

    My boyfriend has epilepsy, but it's only triggered by flashing lights. He can also get a seizure if he gets too scared or nervous. He got his first one at a movie theater in 7th grade. He got diagnosed and now can't go into movie theaters. It's a little disappointing to me that...
