I had a seizure Wednesday; I thought that I was doing good with taking my medication, getting enough sleep, turning my brain off at a reasonable time, but I guess I was wrong. I realize that life can get in the way sometimes, and we will fall back, but that is not a reason to stop. Life will continuously try to get in the way every chance it gets, but why will I allow it to stop me. I have learned over the years that I am only as strong as I see myself to be, and today I see myself being as strong as ever.
When I wake up the morning after having a seizure, I know that I have two options; I could let the seizure control how I act throughout the day, or I could accept that I had a seizure and move forward, continuing to be grateful anyway. I may not feel great physically or even mentally; my muscles and joints might feel stiff, and I might have a headache, but I know that by changing my mindset, things will seem a bit easier to handle.
A healthy mindset is critical when moving through a neurological illness. If we are constantly dwelling on the dis-ease, then we will always feel that we are less capable of getting through it. We will think that the dis-ease is bigger than we are, and we are not capable of moving through it. I know that some days this is hard; a seizure, or two, or three might try to make us feel like we are weak; I know for me it does, but I know deep down inside that I am not weak, even if my body and brain might feel as though.
