This is part of a month-long series that my teen daughter and I are writing about her life and learning to live with epilepsy. To start at the beginning, click here.
I try to keep Beth from hearing about stories of people with epilepsy. Because epilepsy usually doesn't make the news unless something terrible has happened. Seizures are not talked about nearly enough and often it's because people with epilepsy try to keep it hidden. The disorder is not understood and they are mocked and ridiculed for having seizures. Until something terrible happens.
It's a story about Coach Kill and a little boy. It will break your heart and fill you up all at the same time. You will understand epilepsy when you're done. And why I call Beth my hero. Every minute of every day she deals with this.
It's time to start talking about epilepsy.
