Losing Hope

I'm losing all hope

In these meds and keto

The pain won't end

Even with 15 pills related to seizures

Every damn day

Inside, I feel dead

* * *

I can only go 3 weeks without seizures now when it used to be 4-6 weeks between them. I'm regressing despite trying as hard as I can and it is killing me inside. I take pills and eat differently than my family and I'm miserable. Nothing works.

    Im sorry it's gotten worse. I really wish that there was something I was able to do to take it all away and to help make you feel better.

  • I'm so sorry things are getting worse 🥺 I have no idea at all how to help you and I'm so sorry for that. I hope you stay strong girly 🥺❤️

    It took me over 7 years to keep finding solution for my stomach issue. Sometimes the diet will work and sometimes not. The medicine will work at first and the body get immune to them. Our body can sometimes sabotage our effort but never quit. Sending you hugs !!!
