the “Reboot”

the “Reboot” Part 1:

imageedit_2_2922754611The idea of being “normal” or I guess being “broken”… the difference is this… After having a seizure, your brain needs time to “reboot” (just like a computer) BUT… If your brain does NOT get the time to “reboot”… then I guess you will act “broken” until that “reboot” period happens…
People that go through multiple seizures… A DAY… may NOT get that FULL “reboot” time period necessary to allow their brains to fully “REBOOT”… or “RESET”…
ALL THEY NEED IS… A REBOOT PERIOD… The brain is NOT going to work properly, if it’s constantly trying to “reset” or “reboot”… it needs “time” to reboot and then reset…

Our “Medical Science” needs to figure out how to help give peoples brains a chance to fully “reboot”… and “reset”… that’s all they need… I’m sure of this for many people with Epilepsy…

I beleive this idea and health process to be TRUE. *(maybe not for every or all cases of Epilepsy but for a majority)

I’m NOT a Doctor… BUT… I have lived my life with Epilepsy for over 20 years… I can only hope and maybe think this post has helped… SOMEONE… understand, the “REBOOT” process after a Seizure.

My brain needs to “reboot” and “reset” for me to be… “NORMAL” again… what ever normal is…

the “Reboot” Part 2:

“Living life” with Epilepsy… ALONE… Imagine waking up in a VERY strange environment, alone. In a ghost-like room. Nobody you know around. I don’t know how I got here… or even, where here is… You are still “rebooting” from a seizure… but you don’t know that, at this moment in time.
If only there was somebody there to tell me to calm down and relax; slow down, you just had a seizure and you are still “rebooting”… YOU ARE SAFE AND OK…

…BUT there is no one around… I am alone, and I don’t know why. So now my main concern turns to protecting myself…

I have “broken” out of the Hospital a couple times in my life because of this… WHY… because I truly feel it’s natural human nature and behavior to want to protect one’s self when you are in an unknown environment.

Amazingly the safest place I could be (the Hospital) and I want to “break out”… strange but true…

But “rebooting” from a seizure can be a very confusing process and when you go “down” in a “normal” everyday environment and wake up in the “white walls” of a Hospital… this can be a major issue of confusion…

“…ARE YOU WHERE I AM…

…AM I WHERE YOU ARE…”
