So why blog? I don’t really care much for ‘putting myself out there’ to be honest with you. And lord knows I have enough on my plate; that’s for sure. The answer is because I hate epilepsy. Hate it with the fire of a thousand suns (that’s Shakespeare’s in case you require citations). I have nothing nice to say about this awful illness. It is the devil. But hating something is a slippery slope. Once you let hate in, it can spread like a cancer. And before you know it, it’s taken root and made you bitter and miserable. So I feel like I have to work especially hard to not let epilepsy and hate win. I can’t just stop hating epilepsy. Hate it. But I can focus on the positive things in our lives. Like Savannah’s smile. You might say to yourself, but Savannah, you, and your family are who you are because of epilepsy. And I would counter with no; we are this way despite epilepsy. It’s a choice. Our choice. Hence the blog. This is my way of focusing on the positive in our lives and trying to laugh a little in the process. Savannah smiles despite epilepsy. And so will I.
