Time to Run My World

This is a very QUICK update! 

So…. My life has been spiraling; everything has been spinning out of control, which is why I’ve decided to take some back. Tomorrow I’m going to start a dairy free diet, and also try to drastically cut back on my sugar. 

Now, for those who know me well, you know that I am a cheese fiend (even though I’m both lactose intolerant AND allergic to dairy!) PLUS I also eat at least one bag of sweets a day…… 

Now, sugar (in moderation) is incredibly helpful for seizure recovery (as in, to give to somebody when they have just had a seizure) however, if you’re scoffing it by the truckload as I do on a daily basis, it is also known to be a major trigger, as is dairy. 

Stress is also a trigger, however at the moment there is not much I can do about that. I’m still having major issues with work, which is making me incredibly ill: just this week alone I’ve had two generalised seizures (grand mals) and three or four complex partial seizures, because of the torment I’m going through with work. It frustrates me even more that I cannot talk about it. 

Which is why I need to do something, instead of wishing I was dead every day. 

Therefore… The picture you see above you, might be my last EVER bag of sweets…

And now I won’t get to indulge in this ridiculously expensive cheddar I bought on Friday…. 

(WHY GAWD WHYYYYYYY???!!!!!!)

These crème brûlées could be my last……

And what shall become of these unfinished bars of chocolate..?

(DISCLAIMER: Yes at this point, I did raid my flat looking for any dairy and sugar-related items LOL)

I’ve also booked myself in for a meditation taster session in South London somewhere tomorrow afternoon….. 

… And I still have the Headspace app on my phone… 

… More on that tomorrow…. 

… Once I’ve recovered from my last dairy and sugar binge bitches!!!!!

I’m Cece Alexandra and I have Epilepsy. Since being diagnosed, my life has changed significantly. After studying and teaching Humanities and Literature for all of my adult life, I was bullied and lost my job a month before qualifying to become an English Teacher. Once you fail the Teacher Training course in England, you cannot ever retrain; I then became too sick to work because of my Epilepsy. I am now currently studying an MSc in Mental Health Psychology with the University of Liverpool. My disability provokes me into raising awareness for invisible disabilities, which I also actively partake in with Epilepsy Action. Part of that awareness is to help fight against invisible disability discrimination - I believe that this behaviour is not cognitively unconscious; modern society is actively partaking in a hierarchy of disabilities and I believe that there is not enough psychological research to prove this. I am also clinically interested in Cultural Psychology - particularly Collectivist Culture, and wish to pursue this further in my academic career.
