On 4th of July I had a grand mal seizure that lead to me breaking my toe and getting burned on the right side of body from the hot cement and bit my tongue and lip. I had to be taken to the er in the ambulance. I am still very tired. When people call me a freak and a loser I don’t believe them because I know I’m not.
