Today I Had a Seizure.

Yes, Reader, whomever you may be, I am an epileptic. I have the "falling sickness." I take medication to prevent seizures, 400 mg of Dilantin per day. But today it didn't work.

I don't know why. I'll have to see Dr. Fulton, my neurologist, and talk to him about it.

Seizures are indescribable, but I'll try anyway. Later on. You see, I don't like to talk about my epilepsy, not right after I've had a seizure. Not until my life gets back to normal, after about a day or so.

After a seizure I like to sleep for several hours. I had this one about noon, and my head's just clearin' up now (10:44 PM). It made me lose a lot of time when I should have been doing my homework.
