My Friend’s Epilepsy

A friend that was my neighbor for 7 years has really bad epilepsy and found out yesterday that he isn’t eligible for surgery because the seizures are coming from most parts of his brain. Any day he could have a seizure that effects a nerve in his heart that could kill him.

It makes me eyes ball up writing this because he’s like a brother to me. If he died I of course would go to the funeral and would need to see the body layed out because he’s Catholic and that’s what they do.

He has Autism and is as low functioning as you can get, but I love him the same. His parents are like second parents to me, but his sister that’s 2 years older than me is annoying af and I don’t talk to her.

He’s truly a “pure sole.” Even though he may not know it, he’s really suffering.

  • As someone that's 27 and terminal, all I can say from the other side of things is I think you should just enjoy the time you got with him.

    Hope for the best. Don't dwell on it but prepare yourself for it.

    I know I've been doing the same with people I love.

    My advice is not to treat him any differently than you have in the past.

    Try to keep him as happy. Even autistic doesn't mean he doesn't know what's happening to him. Take his mind off that s***.

    obviously, for everyone it's different. On how people cope with things.

    Hope this comment helped in SOME way.

    If there is a god I'll tell your friend you say hi if he passes before me.

    Sorry to hear about your friend. S*** is rough.
