I've had E. since I was born. I wonder sometimes if the fact that I remember stuff so well is because I've never known what it's like without seizures. I have notices lots of people on here that have…Continue

Taking The LONG way home

Posted on March 8, 2013 at 1:38am 2 Comments

I live in the country, outside the city limits. The county line runs though my neighbor's pasture. Well 1 of my few neighbors anyway. There are a couple of miles between each of us. Anyway!! There are 4 different ways I can think of for me to get home, depending on which county you are in & which end of said county you are comming from. On occasion I have gone from my job at McDonalds in Daingerfield, in Morris county & drove an extra 5 + miles out of the way, through cass county…

Gas Prices as seen by this Epileptic Driver

Posted on April 27, 2012 at 11:08pm 0 Comments

Yes I know it sounds like the title of a book, but it hit me the other day. I payed $80.13 to fill up my truck. Since I work 5 miles from home & only drive short distances that 1 tank will probably last me till the middle of May. As I was leaving the gas station that day I started thinking about the bunches of times my licenses has been suspended & all the people on here who can't drive , either short term or L O N G term all of us due to one thing E. Yes I know all the what if's of…

Ever read some instructions for something & it seemed like greek.  But everyone else you know is using that item you've got or on that particular website, or what ever it is.  A friend of mine suggested me & her should creat our own Blogs , I forgot about thisone, so I was on blogspot.com & it's probably exstreemly simple to start one.  But I'm a Lowtech Redneck, so a got mad & deleted my account.  I do that all the time with things.  Could just be that country folks aint…

Went to see my Neurologist this week. I only go once a year. Since the surgery in 96 the visits went from every 3 months, toevery  6months to once a year. Never did actualy see the DR. , he was in another part of the hospital reading EEG's. Saw his assistant, what ever she was. I like her. Ya gotta love it when nothing happens & they say everything looks good, we just need a little blood work. Then we will see you next year. The lady asked a…

Something truly terrible was said to me in class last week. There is this other student with epilepsy. A group of students were talking about his class work. At one point I said to the group of students “Oh,you know him?” One of the students in the group says “Ya he hangs out in the lobby. He’s got mental issues (making reference to the epilepsy) kind of like you.” I was MORTIFIED!! I thought I was going to cry.

Beth,

         Read your comment on McDonald's employer & crew - always glad to hear positive news and to both realize that we try and they give us a chance.  Also read your comment on gas prices and wish I had a vehicle that I could fill up.  Even if I didn't drive it -it would still give me a "sense" of freedom.  That last part may only make sense to me though.  Agree with your sediments and also would not take it for granted.  Art

I've been on my own since 1998, it was 14 years on February 4, it was scary at first just you in what at the time seemed an enormous cave where everything echoed and you could hear a pin drop. Then you get a stereo, play some tunes, cable TV, phone, DSL, your very first rent bill, and telephone bill, your own computer, and you realize that it isn't that scary after all, make some friends, check out the restaurants, ask the waitress out (not interested by the way), you learn about budgeting your money and making it last out the month, after rent and phone take a chomp out of your wallet. Being scared is all right, heck I sometimes wonder if a bolt of lightning is going to strike the building and take out me and the Buddy dog. Being frightened is normal, trusting and loving yourself is key and it is a key that unlocks freedom and independence.

I have completed the manuscript for a memoir--The Lightning Storm Within: Reflections in the Rear View Mirror.  It is written on an automotive slant.

Driving Regulations are Rules for the Road

Epilepsy Facts and Figures are The Owner's Manual

In the beginning is At the Starting Line

High School is Got No Dents On Me

alcohol/sobriety (never said I was perfect) is Ethanol in the Fuel Tank

meds chapter is At the Gas Station

atonic seizures chapter is Watch For Falling Objects

Backfires is seizure types

Warning Lights is precipitors

 

It is all written and I am in the process of the next step, a book proposal (a sales plan of how to market and sell your book)
