Epilepsy Blog Relay: Kat and living with seizures

This post is part of the Epilepsy Blog Relay™, which will run from June 1 to June 30, 2018.  Follow along!

Kat’s Story

Kathryn writes the blog, Kat’s Temporal Lobe Diaries. Kat writes, “Unfortunately I have seizures. It’s simply a part of my life, as much as every other thing.” She goes on to write, “I live in the state of motherhood, just like I live in my tree lined neighborhood. My children keep me sane and drive me crazy.”

Excerpt from Kat’s blog

Kat has participated in the Epilepsy Blog Relay almost for as long as it has been running! Here’s an excerpt from last June’s post:

“I went four whole months of consciousness and normal sleep patterns. Now I am back to square one. Square negative one. My brain had an electrical storm and now I will be soft and squishy for days. Sleep will descend like a meteor. My windows are shattered from the impact.

I don’t want to admit how quickly doing so much better can go to smashed face into the corner of the sink and bleeding broken on the floor. Fours month wasn’t forever, but I was starting to think it was. Maybe I could go six months without seizure. I would make a sign and take a selfie like all my Epi Friends online. Ten seconds later and all that shit has been destroyed. At least my husband was in the bathroom with me. This time I woke up on the floor confused and tired, but unharmed. There is always that at least. My tongue doesn’t even hurt. I didn’t wake up in the hospital naked.”
