My story

Hello my friends ,
I will briefly tell you my story . In 2007 , I had an Traumaric brain injury that control the muscle of speech . I somehow recovered from it but till now sometimes I make some misspelling but I am dealing with it . To be honest , it was hard especially when people start laughing when you make some mistakes . some people who were already known that i had an accident start calling me crazy and so on . I was 12 years old and I realised that society is so cruel but I survived that . After years exactly in 2016 , I had an seizure for the 1st time and my doctor told me the major cause is the trauma that you had when you were kid . I started taking pill , it is indeed a sword with double edged , it helped me but it put me in depression eveyday I think of death that I will die in any moment . I am tryping and in meanwhile crying . I do not know why I am writing this to you . I wanna share this with you . anyways , after awhile I quited taking pill and in the end of 2019 I had another seizure . It really hurt especially in the jaw and teeth . now my dotor gave me the same pill and I am now in depression but I feel it is depression but I am convincing myself to be happy and I am happy no matter what . I love you all and remember to love your beloved ones .and I have a dream that we are going be as unity The united states of earth . Peace and Love <3 <3

Thank you for the reply means

Thank you for the reply means a lot to me  . I have the tonic-clonic seizure. I completely lose my consciousness. I dont feel anything only darkness but when I wake up every single muscle hurts a lot and also I feel shock .  these seizures suddenly appear without a waring  .
