The title is not a typo.
Yes, gifts from epilepsy.
Falling down over and over again forces you to practice getting up.
Shunning gives you thick skin.
All your friends are true, because the fake ones ditch you.
You get more grit than most people on the planet.
A huge, wide-open heart is acquired.
You get to be an expert at empathy.
You get really good at feeling the fear and doing it anyway.
Make no mistake, epilepsy is a foe not a friend.
It steals your freedom. It robs you of your peace.
But it does give certain gifts, whether you want them or not.
