I guess this week's going to be more of a story than anything else, because there's a lot going on in my head right now. After a 48-hour EEG last week, I went to the doctor on Thursday morning and met with my famous, brilliant doctor. We determined that the medicine hasn't been working. The... Continue Reading →


In the past few weeks, my roommate and I have been constantly recalling memories from our years at college so far, especially lately, as we design our apartment for our last year. We have been inseparable since we began getting to know each other, 3 years ago to the date, before we had even graduated... Continue Reading →


For a while after it happened, people have been asking if I'm okay, and at first I wasn't. The days didn't seem to get better. A few weeks later, it started to get better, so slightly. I still feel that way, a month later, trying to take one step at a time. Trying to sit... Continue Reading →


Yesterday was another normal day. I worked out after class and then headed to the dining hall to grab lunch. The same dining hall where it all first started.

It's only been a week and I haven't made much more peace with any of this. I haven't been able to wrap my head around the fact that the cycle is starting again. That the doctor's appointments, medication changes, and tests are going to start again. Everytime I try to tell myself that everything will... Continue Reading →


On Monday, I spent the whole day relaxing. I cooked, watched some TV, took a nap, and when I finally sat down to do some homework that night, I got settled in on the couch in my apartment. I was suddenly very dizzy, which got worse and worse until I blacked out. The next thing... Continue Reading →


It's with me every minute of every day. Sometimes, for a few hours, I forget that I was diagnosed. I forget that everything changed a year ago. It's amazing because when it all first happened, I thought I wouldn't ever stop thinking about it. It's gotten better over the past year, but there's still some... Continue Reading →
