    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...

    Allie

    My sister has been diagnosed with epilepsy since she was 14. She had her first seizure in school. I remember having to go to the hospital with her, and everyone watched as we went away in the ambulance. She was wearing odd socks that day, she's never worn odd socks since. She...

    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...

    I Knew Someone With Epilepsy

    10 Years And Counting

    A while back, while working for Wal-mart (thank God I don't work for them anymore), I met a girl who I'll refer to as Ann (her middle name). At first, other people were a bit weary about her, because she was a dead ringer for an ex-girlfriend I had recently broken up with. I must...

    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...

    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...

    I always try to reach out to friends and ask them to hangout, relax, and talk about anything. In the end, I still don't get invited to social gatherings and I'm alone.
