Hi! I finally found a decent place to share my condition and the extreme anger I feel that accompanies it. Let me start by saying that 2 years ago I was embracing a finally realized dream and working towards getting my book published. I was even flown to Japan by a publishing company to interview and research artists for cover art for my graphic novel.
In the summer of 2010, I was involved in a hit and run accident. I was t-boned my a drunk driver ( who was later caught and charged ) and left on the side of the road. I sustained serious head trauma, swelling in the frontal lobe, which went unchecked, missed by my doctors. It developed into an intracranial hemmorrhage, which was only discovered a month later when I collapsed at work in grand mal seizure.
I am now the lucky recipient of a seizure disorder that will affect me for the rest of my life. In addition to an expensive prescription of Dilantin that i must now take twice a day, I can't write as I once did, as staring at the PC screen for long periods of time now leave with my crippling headaches.
I'm trying hard to move past this affliction as I still have things I want from life ( Im only 29 ) and I'm mommy to 3 gorgeous girls ( yes, pity me! lol ) and they need me as much I as I still need my identity as a writer. So, here's hoping to making and developing new friends and relationships
