Even my mother has suggested that I write a children's book -- you know, something to take my mind off what I usually write about. I can't tell you why I write what I do write, other than that I'm here to tell a story and right now, it's my story to tell. I have an email subscription to Medscape, the godawful site that sends pertinent medical information my way. Whenever something in the neurology field, or more specifically epilepsy field, pops up on Medscape, I get a notice in my inbox. Last night I got this:
This cracked me up -- literally made me laugh out loud. I immediately envisioned myself, sitting at the breakfast table with my cup of coffee, musing on how many antiepileptic drugs to try. I imagined a street game of sorts, maybe even darts, a jocular list of dos and don'ts, pros and cons. There would be a carnival barker, someone to call the shots -- will she try one more?
How many epileptic drugs to try?
I might as well be a snake wrangler at a side-show. Humor me, Reader. I might just be going insane.
