Part 1


I stand
Looking
in the
mirror
As
she styles
my
hair.
I'm struck
with
a deep
deep thought.
I don't
know
what.
I think
about
this
thought
As
my head
starts
to
hurt.
What is it?
Have no
clue.
It's too
Deep
in
my
brain,
too far
down
for me
to
understand.
I look
in
the
mirror
and
continue
to
think
deeply.
Suddenly
I
Feel
tired.
Extremely
tired.
My eyelids
Droop
as
I struggle
to
stay
awake.
I'm feeling
sleepy.
Very
sleepy...
My head
Cracks
Against
the
bathtub.
Suddenly
I'm on
the
floor.
I
Lie
there.
"Kathryn?"
I hear a
faint voice
ask.
I can
hear.
I can
see.
I can
Feel
the pain.
But I
can't
move.


Part 2


Suddenly
I can
move.
I get
up.
She looks
Confused
as
I ask
what's
going
on.
She
tells me
I
Swayed
back and
forth
back and
forth
until I
collapsed.
I call
911.
I
Quietly
Sit
Down
as I
wait.
Suddenly
my parents
arrive
home.
They
don't
know
anything
is
wrong.
So
I tell
them.
We
Wait
Until
the ambulance
arrives.
They
Take
tests.
The
Quick
Prick
in my
finger
stings.
I find out.
It was
a
seizure.
I sit
Quietly
In
shock.
