I am so honoured to have been asked by Rob Goldstein to appear this week on Flickr Wednesday, a slot on his wonderful website ART by Rob Goldstein. Along with many other Artists he shows our work of his choosing and gives a short Bio of us.
Thankyou Rob for doing this for me.
Awareness...... makes us better people.
There are good days and there are bad days.
The good days are how I used to be, pre-Epilepsy, I function.
The bad days can be suffocating, I feel nauseous, confined and 'out there'.
The rubber band tightens around my head inch by inch, my vision is faulty. The Aura's build sometimes to nothing, just an invasion of my headspace for 3 days or more. I feel cheated. At least let me fit, get it out my system.
Then the good days shine through and sun comes out, my head is my own again. My thoughts are clear and my movements unstuttering and fluid. My speech is clear and not forgetful.
I'm free again, free to be me.
Epilepsy is something that is owned by someone. It goes with that person and they live with it and it with them.
It does not go away, it does not hide and it is part of who they are.
Do not ignore it and pretend not to know it or them. It is not a Victorian illness I am now 52 and have lived with it for 14 yrs. It is 2016 and I live with it and it with me and we are ok together :)
Many Thankyou's for browsing at my work, I am so appreciative of comments and awards given to me. Nothing is wasted...*
