I was reminded by one of my other mothers how I felt
when IT came back.
A seizure happens after a long seizure-free spell.
You are thinking that IT has finally left her alone.
It throws her down while you are not there.
She is injured, you are shaken.
At some point we have accepted that IT will be back.
We will not let it steal the time in between.
We will do what we want and be who we want
until IT returns.
Getting back up is the most important part.
IT will NOT keep her down.
