Epilepsy- Helpless

Location

Helpless.

An intense electrical pain filters through my scared body.

My unlucky limbs become violently uncontrollable.

Shaking.

Trembling.

Tense.

Afraid.

I scream in my head for it to stop!

I fight with all my might!

Nothing.

Helpless.

My unlucky limbs become calm.

My racing heart slows down.

Its finally over.

But I still feel...

Helpless.

I'm so sorry for what you have to go through. I don't know how a seizure is personally, but I know how terrifying they look to an outsider (my sister has had them almost all her life). I'll be praying for you, & know that there will always be people to support you, even when the epilepsy drags you down.

Amazing poem. As an epileptic myself I believe it captures a seizure perfectly.

Need to talk?
