Feeling Grumpy About My Seizures

hyperbole and a halfhey friends! Hope you’re doing well, wherever you are in the world. As you can see from the title, I am feeling grumpy about my seizures.

Let’s be real, okay? I had an excellently productive day yesterday where I did Pilates in the morning, worked on my online course, and then  wrote cover letters for jobs that I could see myself thriving in. I also took my Chihuahua/Pug (Chug) out for a short walk, because it was pretty hot. My boyfriend came over, because he forgot his phone charger at my house. In these days and ages, forgetting your charger is like death because ultimately your phone WILL die and there’s nothing you can do about it. Phones are like our life lines. Ok enough about phones.

I had 5 seizures while sleeping, and then another two while awake. FABULOUS!! OMG just what I wanted! I am adding on more medication, in hopes that it will be the tape that makes days seizure-free, but I had so many plans for today!
Yogalates (a combo of Yoga and Pilates)
Work on my course
Write cover letters
Take my Chug, JoJo out for a walk.
It sounds boring and menial, but I thrive on structure and familiarity.

Now I have to get used to the structure of this:

Lie in bed on my back
Lie on my side
Go to the bathroom
Watch a documentary on Youtube
Feel pathetic about being mopey because the people on these shows have it way worse than me
Go into the kitchen, and open the fridge,
Decide that maybe the only thing I want to eat is an apple.
Wash the apple.
Eat the apple until I have a disgusting core in my room
I don’t want to get up to throw the core away

Basically, what I am getting at is- in addition to being scary and inconvenient, seizures can cause for very VERY boring days.  Facebook or no Facebook, they are still dull.

That is essentially my day when I have had a cluster of seizures and need to “take it easy”. I f***ng hate whoever came up with that term. Sita doesn’t “Take it easy”. Sita works hard, gets shit done, all the while taking care of herself.

Whelp. I guess I just have to focus on the latter. I hope your day isn’t as shitty as mine.

  1. So I watched part of a news program about Charlotte’s Oil (THC-based) and how it’s available in Colorado and how parents of children who have epileptic seizures have traveled there to purchase it. The parents were talking about how it helped their children; seizures lessened greatly. I’d be foolish to think you haven’t explored this. Love to hear your thoughts, public or private. Love.
