Bullied Because of Epilepsy… 

Epilepsy Talk

Like lions, they smell the difference…

Like hawks, they sweep down on you…

And like hyenas, they laugh and eat your heart out.

I guess Robert Drucker never heard the saying “don’t hit a man when he’s down.”

Because even though I wasn’t a man, I was surely down on the ground with a seizure. Lend me a hand to get up?

He kicked me in the face and broke my nose.

But no pity parties here.

I’m sure you’re not new to the bullying game.

Where ignorance rules and mean is cool. Just ask:

Paul, taunted as the “seizure boy” throughout school…

Gemma, gang raped by three boys as a teen…

Troy, whose (former) best friend beat him up…

Sarah, mugged by a man pretending to be her date while she was seizing…
