Welcome to the Looking Glass

All my life I’ve know something wasn’t right. I didn’t know what. I didn’t know why. But I knew.
Doctors diagnosed me as bipolar with moderate anxiety. Some people speculated I was possibly add or adhd, as well. I was jokingly,  and seriously,  called a hypochondriac. And I often wondered if I was losing my mind.

My theory was definitely the closest. But we were all wrong.

In January of 2017, at 30 years old, I was finally, accurately, diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. 

For many, a diagnosis like this could easily feel like the world has turned upside down. For me, I felt like my world had ALWAYS been upside down and finally, it was right side up. 

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) is a novel by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), the sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Set some six months later than the earlier book, Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it.

This blog is a diary of my life with TLE. 

A story, if you will, of Living in the Looking Glass. 

Where things are strange and sometimes confusing… But never, ever boring…
