This poem was inspired by how I handled becoming epileptic when I was twenty-two. Here's your sex:
I got fucked when epilepsy changed my life.


the wounds are small
I rationalize

denial is my patch
but the pressure builds

pressure on my heart
pain in my throat

my eyes spring leaks
small drops of relief

What do you do when an epileptic has a seizure in a bathtub?
You run quick and get the soap and dirty laundry.
Hoping against hope that you'll leave me my favorite type of comment I'll reply in advance: Fuck you too.
Has anyone already figured out that unreasonable anger is a common side effect of my latest epilepsy medicine? Very good, I'm impressed.
For the curious, it's called levetiracetam and the preion did come with counseling so you're a year late if you're here to tell me I need a shrink, I'm already seeing a good one. The fucked up memory, headaches, impaired cognition and language skills are all a bonus. Talking face to face if you didn't know me, you'd think I'm even more stupid than you already do.
TMI? Why didn't you stop reading? lol

Ignore the below comment. I refreshed the page when returning to my computer some time later and it posted the same comment. I will register and send a proper response to you later.

"What do you do when an epileptic has a seizure in a bathtub?

You're a fucking idiot. How can you joke like that if YOU are epileptic? I'm epileptic, and it came into my life at the age of 19. I'm now 22. It changed my life forever and I'm now suffering from chronic anxiety. Hell, on the topic of a porn forum, it made my performance anxiety with women even worse. Well, at least I have my hand and XNXX, right?

Funny enough, I'm now on levetiracetam too. I'm far worse with people lately. I know the side-effects. I know it hasn't "fixed" my seizures as I have focal seizures regularly and I had two tonic-clonics a week ago. On the bright side, they promised me they'd take brain surgery very seriously if the levetiracetam failed to help. It's failed. So I'll either become seizure-free, or maybe the surgery will go very wrong and I'll end up as a vegetable.

I can't even begin to describe the places the postictal state takes me to..

PS- Use a pill dispenser, an alarm watch, and an alarm phone. Take care of your health every way you can, a lot of different things can make seizures happen more often and be worse. I hope I'm done now. I'm sure you do to.

Good luck;
