250- the world's most positive brain surgery thread


happy friday

i am 250 days seizure-free today! and my mel is 12 days away from her 1-year-free. here is a pic of her tat; after brain surgery we hold this message VERY close - but it's fitting for us all.

That's my F-U to epilepsy!!

Here's how I got my 'hippocampus' back!
"The hippocampus (named after its resemblance to the seahorse, from the Greek hippos meaning "horse" and kampos meaning "sea monster")"



Congrats on your 250, very happy for you, and proud of you!!!

hugs to all living with epilepsy... from 2ndchances (mel... on day 353 seizure-free), and qtowngirl (natasha... on day 250)

...and lol on the contrary my head is not twice the size of mel's! it was a tiny booth and was more meant for children's-size asses!

I love both tattoos, but especially the 1st one.

May you ladies continue to be seizure-free!
