Welcome to Brainstorms: How Epilepsy and Writing Connect, my blog about living with epilepsy. I am glad you have come. In the Archives you will find my poetry about living with this neurological disorder which I have had for many years, since the age of 12.
Most of my poetry is emotional in tone, descriptions of mood — frustration, disappointment, and even anger. You will find hope here as well. Two of my goals are to portray an honest picture of my life with epilepsy and to connect with others who deal with seizures.
Come with me on the journey. Whether you are a poet or not, together we can navigate the valleys and canyons of epilepsy and support one another along the trail. Click on a month’s archives to read my work. Please comment as you see fit and leave your fingerprints here. I am always interested in what you think.
