| | I met someone else with E and it felt so weird.
The other night I was at a party - and somehow the topic of blackouts came up (my friend seemed to be having quick ones) and I asked her if she was having seizures...she said No. Then I got to talking about how good that was - because E was such a pain ect ect. Then this awesome guy came up (unfortuantely he's going out with another friend - AND I have a loving boyfriend) but he says to me "You have E?" and I was like "Yeah, since 8 years old", and he told me that he used to - but he'd outgrown it, and then we started comparing seizures and actually got EXCITED about the EEG's and the glue and the lil' orange pills with the jell inside - ect ect. I felt so connected to him - like I'd known him my whole life. I wanted to keep talking to him for ever - because I don't often get a chance to talk about it with anyone else. I felt so strange. Is this reaction normal? He finished by saying "WOW - thats AWESOME...oh, well not that you have epilepsy - but..." and I said "It's okay - I know EXACTLY what your saying!"
