This. This a million times over. what-obsession: It’s hard to explain to someone who has no clue. It’s a daily struggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside.

Knowing it’s the day to restock your pill box for the week, but putting it off for a day or two out of some false sense of rebellion, even though you know good in hell well you’re gonna get the actual bottles out to take the medicines (duh, you need them), and after those 2 days of inconveniences to yourself, you indeed restock the pillbox. epilepsy
Going to a Cardinals vs. Cubs game with my boyfriend and his parents tonight. Having a hard time finding what to wear. I have a lot of red, but every shirt, hoodie (it’s getting cold here!) and hat/beanie I own says “Houston” “U of H” or “Cougars” on it. And since it’s the almost the playoffs, and they play the Astros next… I don’t wanna...

So my epilepsy med I was complaining about the other night that took away my appetite… I called the doc and complained because I’m petite and can’t afford to lose the little thickness I got. So they said take it once a day instead of twice. So since I took it this morning, I skipped tonight’s dose. And my stomach is GROWLING for the first time in a week! And I don’t...

I’m laying in bed. A about 20 minutes ago, someone was outside shooting. Really though, tonight? Leave it to me to always pick the nicest homes with the worst neighbors. So I brought babygirl to sleep in bed with me. My daughter who has to grow up in a world where our prison system yet again killed an innocent man in the name of “justice”. I want to reblog all of what...

Megan reads "Catching Fire" ("Hunger Games Pt.2)
So I clearly lied on this morning’s post. I started that book at 8 something this morning and finished the last page, fiendishly wanting to start the 3rd book in the trilogy around 5:30 this afternoon. I have a reading fetish. I should go to support meetings and turn over my library card. These books are damn good. Ah, literature!
For the record… I stan the Hunger Games trilogy. Just after the 1st book, which I just read 2 weeks ago. I didn’t read the Harry Potter books, because I felt like I had 1,000 pages better things to do with my life, but loved the movies. Twilight everything made me barf so don’t ask me about that. But this story is compelling, well-written, and all around awesome. I just want to...
Pride and Promises
Last night I was running down a short list of errands I need to run and wishing I could drive myself to go do them… and contemplating if I felt okay enough to do so. While doing Jojo’s hair this morning I was thinking of this short list out loud. And she was like, “Call X,Y,X…” but pride wouldn’t let me bug or ask them to do so for my various reasons today, so I...

The Vanity of Our Culture is a Bit Much Sometimes
The 2 new epilepsy meds I’m taking cause a loss of appetite. One of them, an extreme loss of appetite. Like, in the past 3 days, I’ve eaten a half a bowl of noodles, a half a pack of cheetos, 2 pieces of bacon, 2 biscuits, and 2 pieces of chicken. And was forced by myself or others to do so because I know I need to eat but the thought of eating nauseates me due to this medication. And...

Eskimo Kiss? No?
Adrienne: *gets really close to me like she wants to give me a kiss as usual* Eskimo Kiss?
Me: *WIDE ASS EYES*
Adrienne: Why are you looking at me like that? I figured that would be better than a regular kiss since you don't like those?
Me: If you don't back the hell away from me!
Adrienne: We just had a big ass fight and big ass bonding sister make up moment. I think an Eskimo kiss is in order.
Me: Oh, what is this? I'm having a seizure, can't Eskimo kiss you. Sorry. Oh... fuck, I actually am having a seizure *starts to shake*.
Adrienne: See, God don't like ugly. Ooop, I'm gonna shake with you *Eskimo kisses me as my head slowly shakes back and forth.
Me: *after seizure* I can't stand you, get the hell out of my room, and cut off my damn light.
Adrienne: *exits room, while telling Harlem Shake jokes*
Hospital Stay - Day 3:
I learned to quit asking so many questions. Saves me from getting pissed when I don’t get the answers I want or any answers at all. I don’t like pajama sets. I usually sleep in big t-shirts stolen from my boyfriend or caught from a shirt launcher at a UH football game. But I got tired of hospital gowns, and they require you to wear something that buttons down the front. So I am in...
Hospital Stay - Day 2 Recap (Via my Twitter Rant)
Bad food, doc made me angry, watched Obama wreck shop, reading/loving “Hunger Games”, lots o’ seizures. Though my anti-epileptic drugs don’t stop my seizures, they sure as hell take some power out of the punch. Being off of them is TUFF man. Followers, friends, colleagues - I see you guys tweet about partying/drinking everyday. Take $1 of that and donate to #epilepsy...
Video EEG, Day 1
At Barnes Jewish Hospital waiting to be admitted to the video EEG monitoring unit. My babygirl cried that I’d be in the hospital for a week. Even though her school is 5 minutes away, my sister works here IN this department, and has promised to bring her to see me daily. My poor baby :( I have no idea what to expect but I’m here. Prayers up one mo’ ‘gin please...
Still sick. Blah blah, lament, lament.
Blood patch didn’t work because they couldn’t get enough blood from my tiny veins to sufficiently stop the spinal fluid leak. Boo bought me back to the ER. They couldn’t get a good vein to even give me IV meds. So, 2 Vicodin and a pain killer shot in the ass later, we’re waiting to get re-discharged so I can be up and at the other hospital at 9am for my week long stay for a...
The spirit is willing, but the body is weary
Had a spinal tap Wednesday. They say expect a headache for a few days. It’s next Tuesday and mine is still excruciatingly uncontrolled. Have to go the ER now to get a “blood patch” (what?) to plug the leak of spinal fluid and stop the headaches. I just need things to be quick and as painless as possible so I can come home and pack for my week long hospital stay in the epilepsy...

Spinal tap went well. Home now. Only problem? I have to stay laying on my back, and its so uncomfortable! I sleep on my side damnit. Lol. But thanks to everyone for the prayers and my sexypants boyfriend for being by my side this morning, and currently getting me milk n’ cookies :)
