We exist to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

Hello everyone
around 3am yesterday morning when my warning for my epileptic seizure fizzed my brain i knew for a few minutes i was going to into that other world - into a kind of central place where all who are having a same time seizure from all over the world congregate - same faces - same shrug of the shoulders while we shake off that rogue electricity.

It's been like this for fifty five years - its about who i am. I am a writer. It's how i have earned my living for the last thirty years . Being epileptic is a nuisance. A pain in the bum. I've now had two seizures in less that two months - the beginning of those two months I went cold turkey on process sugar. I have a really sweet tooth so anything with sugar I would devour. I'm not sure if the sugar thing has anythiing to do with my latest seizures - coincidence i'm not sure. Would I go cold turkey again - no way on this Gods earth!

love to everyone
