Welcome to Wonderland.
Throughout this blog, I will be relating different types of Seizures to different characters in the classic story of Wonderland.
This is a quick guide to the characters and their relating seizure types.
×The Cheshire Cat. Often elusive and seeming to come out of thin air, he represents hallucinations. Visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory and tactile.
×The Queen of Hearts. Demanding, angry, and volatile. Constantly changing. She represents intrusive thoughts and attitude changes.
×Mad Hatter. Crazy and confusing. Leading the brain into an intricate labrynth. He represents Deja Vu (the feeling of having already experienced a present situation) and Jamais Vu (the feeling of experiencing a situation that one recognizes in some fashion, but that, nonetheless, seems very unfamiliar).
×Dormouse. A fatigue that knows no bounds and spontaneous moments of extreme unconsciousness. He represents atonic or “drop” Seizures.
×March Hare. Random, spastic and hyperactive, with a sense of humor to balance. He represents myoclonic Seizures (spasms and twitches).
×The Caterpillar. Very slow and thought provoking. Capturing you in a daze. He represents absence Seizures.
×The White Rabbit. Ruled by time and riddled with anxiety. He represents the anxiety associated with the emotions of coping with TLE.
