    Seizure Background
    My seizures began around 2006 or 2007. They began to occur in the evening after a long day. Over time, they have worsened. I have at least six seizures a day, if not a dozen. I have seen five neurologists, and none have even believed they were real! I believe that none of them were experts, for starters, and many were ignorant about what seizures really are. I know a decent amount of the science of seizures. By studying physics, chemistry, neurology, and applying the principles of these sciences, I have made some progress in reducing and managing my triggers, which include sound, light, and electromagnetic radiation. I have yet to lose consciousness, but have come very close many times. I have auras, sometimes; I have periods either before or in between seizures where I spaceout, or am at least somewhat cognitively impaired. I have fallen hundreds of times since my seizures began, sometimes simply because my legs won't support me. My eyes roll back into my head and my eyelids flutter. I am aware of what is happening, but cannot communicate, or move many times. My body goes limp before seizures sometimes. If I am straining too hard mentally, or conversing for too long, I have seizures. I cannot handle led lights, busy patterns, sunlight. I am able to manage some of my seizures by grounding myself to a highly conductive metal, like a vehicle as the electrical impulses from my environment, or my body or brain, seek the path of least resistance. I have prevented countless seizures by employing these principles I learned through physics and chemistry. I have Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy Type 2, which I believe to be primarily responsible for my seizures.
