Having epilepsy is traumatic, by slowly taking away your freedom it consumes your life. Every seizure is devastating, regaining consciousness feels eerie and is straight up frightening. Your hearing returns first, then slowly, like if you were looking through a tunnel your vision starts to blur outward until you can see a full picture.
"Oh my God what happened? Why am I in the shower? Why am I covered in blood?" With all this adrenaline your body sends your brain to regain consciousness you can't help it and start to cry, "God, please help me! Please Lord help me!" You jump up but you don't know what to do so you just run to find someone, anyone to help.
Seizures broke all of my back molars and now the tile step took the rest of them, I busted up my face leaving my nose slightly crocked and also bit through my lip. After every seizure I have a few days of a sort of PTSD, I have these flashes of that eerie feeling of regaining consciousness and it sends me into a depression.
Those of you out there with big beautiful hearts... please help and share or donate if you can. My only option is dental implants, dentures are too risky, one bad seizure could break them and lead to asphyxiation. My last surgery is coming up, the discount insurance has helped a little, the periodontist himself has taken off 25% as well, but the first half of this procedure has maxed out my Care Credit card so now I need more help than ever, every dollar counts.
Thank you to all of my amazingly wonderful family and friends, those beautiful people who have already been so supportive with their thoughts, prayers and donations. I love you all! Please keep sharing and help me smile again!
