They thought Mom was just neurotic when she told them that I was having these astaring spellsa before the age of two. I wouldnat be officially diagnosed with epilepsy until two years later. I was warned countless times as a teenager to do everything I had to do to avoid getting pregnant or my baby would look like a freak show at the circus. I moved down to Pennsylvania in 1991, where I met Glen. We were married two years later. In 1993, I would meet three angels up at SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York, who would change my life forever. On December 15, 1994, I would undergo fifteen and a half hours of brain surgery while I was fully awake. My recovery period was sheer hell, due to my lack of faith in doctors.
