New entries are marked with:
When The Brain Misfires - Understanding Epilepsy
(USA) Find An Epilepsy Center
Twisted sense of realities
Sieve retaining memories
Multiply sifted assorted trains of thought
Colliding mismatched portions rot retention
Grasp in vain one wonders if sane.
Contortions fluctuate rapidly
Preventing track with ease
Strain this mind as synapse collapse
Finding paths erroneously
Skews comprehension un-proportionately
Masking as it paints,
This picture which relates
Hollowness without known existence
Pummeling down this abyss
Surface remnants of what exists
What is missing is bliss
For being while contorted
Leaves ones mind quite distorted
Cognition of condition
Washes mental position

VNS Page I received the Vagus Nerve Stimulator implant,
a thereaputic device for the treatment of epilepsy, in Feb. 1999.
I have created an information site to inform non-medical people about the
device, my experience and the experiences of others who have had the VNS implant.
What I've Learned from E-Patients: (A doctor's reaction to online support groups.) Newsgroups
steps in the acceptance of my epilepsy
Epilepsy! -- What's epilepsy?
Denial (No I DON'T have epilepsy!)
Why me? / Why is God punishing me?
I'm some sort of freak! / My life is ruined! / I can't do any of the things that I want to do!
OK I have epilepsy... Guess I'm going to have to learn to live with it! -- Now I'll find out who my REAL friends are!
I am not an epileptic, I am a person who happens to have epilepsy! -- Lots of great people have had epilepsy!
Life goes on.
Epilepsy/epileptic what's the big deal? People with diabetes are diabetic; people with asthma are asthmatic. It's just a word...
Epilepsy is just one facet of what makes me ME! -- This is ME, take it or leave it!
