My life is definitely moving forward but at an embarrassingly slow pace. It's a bit like when you stand still on a travelator, only I just don't have the motivation to start walking and consequently speed things up. I know roughly where I want to go but it seems I don't want to get there. … Continue reading Morbid Metaphors
The past few months have been excessively tough. I've held back from writing because part of me still doesn't want to admit just how bad things have got. Over the 17th and 18th of February I had 30 seizures in just as many hours.

The only problem is I've been more stressed the last few days for … Continue reading I Need to have a Seizure
