So when I first heard about butter coffee or bulletproof coffee, I had kind of just started my ongoing journey into the healthier world. I was like, butter? In my coffee? Seems super weird, and kind of hassle-ish because who really wants to bust out their blender or magic bullet right when waking up? I’m typically a quiet person in the morning – like don’t try talking to me too much until I’ve had my coffee. So, the idea of super loud noises happening, not ideal to this girl. But the benefits of bulletproof coffee just kept drawing me in.
I literally can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard the words, “I’m kind of surprised you have a tattoo.” I mean, I get it. I’m not like a rugged, tough looking girl. I’ve frequently been described as ‘basic.’ (Insert eye roll emoji.) But like, can you really be basic when you have seizures? Like, I can’t even drive myself to book club once a month. I literally just LOLed at that notion. Like, just because I enjoy a pumpkin spice candle in November and LuLaRoe leggings with potentially an over-sized sweater? But, if saying ‘totes’ and ‘obvi’ while drinking some Starbucks makes me basic, I guess guilty as charged (eye roll.)
I realize that it may seem a little strange to name my blog ‘seizure girl,’ but I can’t think of a better way to identify myself really. Ever since I was in high school I think I have always thought of myself as “the seizure girl.” I can’t remember where I was or even exactly how old I was, but I overheard someone talking about me one day in high school. So, being the ultimate eavesdropper that I am, my ears perked up and I listened to the conversation with the utmost of grace and this is what I heard: “Ohhhh, she’s the seizure girl.” Y’all. My life was forever changed. Forever.
