This isn’t going to involve advance facts with statistics and all the mumbo jumbo that you have been recently reading. This is going to be about what all people with epilepsy should have on them at all times, even if its weird.
Journals are an essential when you are living with epilepsy and in order to keep track of how you are feeling every day you need something to write it down on. Let’s face it we all don’t have the best memory so this is a good way to make sure you don’t forget. With epilepsy your hands can suddenly shake or you can be having these crazy headaches but don’t know what’s wrong. That’s why you have doctors and if we do not provide them with this information they cannot help us.
I do not think writing about how you feel is difficult, just don’t mention the drama of school and boys. Think of it as a period tracking diary. Girls usually use the online version but don’t write it electronically write it on paper. When you describe how you think about your ovaries and all that jazz. I won’t get into details but we never leave a detail out. Now do that with you epilepsy and don’t leave a single detail out. Below I will create a format that I would use if I were writing in my journal right now.
Epilepsy Entry Format:
Name Date: MM/DD/YYYY
questions to ask:
Where are you?
ex. school, home, hospital etc.
How do you feel?
ex. tired, depressed, dizzy etc.
Is something different about today?
ex. legs feeling weak, shaking of hands, headache etc.
These are just some of the questions you can ask yourself when you are writing a journal entry. Also draw and make the journal your own don’t just do entries cause that is no fun, trust me. You can keep track of your blogging, I’d actually be the one to do it.
Enjoy the rest of your day or night and keep writing. I know I will because I love to write, I just wish my grammar and punctuation was better. It’s amazing I still don’t know the difference between nouns and adjectives.
