    So today my family did something pretty mean today. So we were out with friends at a camp site and I suddenly had a seizure and when I came out of it wasnt sure where I was and was freaking out. Well when I finally came around I caught site of my family making fun of me and my seizures. After that they were making fun of my mental illness like I wasnt even there. I feel so much like who in my life cares about these issues. Lately they have been bad. I was so upset and started scratching and panicking. It hurt because it was like this is apart of me and I dont know what is causing it. My family didnt have a care in the world that I literally couldnt breath as this was happening. I am upset about it. I felt so alone in that moment. My phone had no service due to where we were so I was alone. I was upset and anxious. So here I am posting away at what happened because it is a deep cut. One of the ladies we were with actually is a nurse too. I would have thought she would have at least be better about a seizure where someone is down for awhile.

    Thanks everyone

    I’m really sorry that happened to you Ashandi. What your family did was really cruel and unneccessary. Seizures are no joke! If I was there I would have yelled at them! I hope you are feeling okay. Again i’m sorry that happened 🙁

    Here at home I have no one to protect me or stand up for me. I have always been the joke of my family and this was just one more thing they made fun of me for. I felt like a joke. No honestly I don’t feel any better and what they did put me in a spot. Why I posted. I feel like everyone bullies me and when will it change. This year I have made a change and stood up to my parents on needing a service dog and they just fight me on stuff. I was told by my mom that my grandparents are glad that the pup I got Laila didn’t work out because having a service dog makes me look handicap when in related I am handicapped I can’t see well or hear well and I have seizures and other issues. But I have always been the laughing stock it feels like of my family. It is like let’s make jokes about Ash (Melody). I do not feel any better because they keep commenting about how I looked like a fish out of water. It hurts because I don’t feel anyone truly gets how much I hate these and how much I feel less like me and more like someone who can’t do much.

    Your reply really helped me though. I have felt like even if I fight this they won’t listen. So thanks for the if you where there you would have screamed at them. I would be scared what they would do. My family isn’t the nicest to anyone who goes against what they want or say.
