You might (rightfully) wonder why I decided to write about a lost object and a newfound friend at the City of Toronto's Solid Waste Management Services in a blog that's ostensibly about living with chronic illness(es). I asked myself the same, or at least a related, question. OK, questions—plural—since my brain isn't good at stopping … Continue reading Lost Engagement Ring, New Hero at Waste Management: A Happily Ever After
Though I'm a little late to the party (sorry, that was a groaner), I wanted to weigh in on an unlikely controversy that has many members of the epilepsy community angry. I'm angry, too. In August, Netflix released the film The After Party.

I had an appointment with my epilepsy specialist on Thursday, though, so I figured that I'd make the effort to write a shortish entry with a (kind of … Continue reading Boring Update
In my last entry, dedicated to gloating about a major reduction in my tonic-clonic seizures, I indicated that I'd give an update about my complex partials "in a future post." Believe it or not, I'm following through, and in a relatively timely manner, no less. This is that future post. The future is now. I … Continue reading Best Month Ever! (Well, in the Past Year.)
