Epilepsy

Epilepsy
A stomach-churning
dreamlike spate
of smells-like-burning
frightening states.

Joan of Arc,
Gershwin, Caesar
had this spark
of brain mal-teaser.

Dubbed a madness,
Edward Lear
hid his sadness
from those dear.

Let's get our head
round this enigma
and kill stone dead
its social stigma.

  1. I have a friend who was misdiagnosed from childhood with epilepsy, took the meds her entire life, and now she’s told that it’s not epilepsy but something called heart block. She now has a pacemaker, and she’s right as rain. She wants to learn to drive now. ❤️
