Dear Stacey,


I went to Riverside, California. To meet the love of my life.  After traveling thirty-six hours on the bus, it was love at first sight for me.  We had such a nice time together in California.  I really did like it there.  Nothing else mattered.


I dont think that I have ever worked as hard in my whole life as I did to get to California.  Then something came over this bachelor.  The wind was light.   It was blowing through the palm trees and the smell of different flowers was in the air.   As I turned to her and asked her "Will you marry me?"  The look that came over her face was one of great joy.  She said, "Well-let me think about it O.K.?"  I thought to myself, she will give me a week or so at least to discuss it with her mother.  However, I was wrong.  She turned to me and said, "Yes."  I almost fell like a big oak tree.  She asked me if I were all right.  I told her yes, just a little  "all shook up." 

We did not have an engagement ring.  So she looked through her jewelry box and found this old ring, which we went and had polished.  This ring was so pretty that neither one of us believed it.  It was a ruby with pink flowers on all four sides.  Now after forty-nine years I finally bit the bullet.

After we had such a great time then, bad luck hits.  At 12:03 p.m.  The following morning  I went to the rest room and afterwards a second later I was thrown against a wall.  Somehow I had suffered a bad injury to my right foot.  I elevated my foot and then went into several other continuous seizures.  When I could get some medicine that my fiancee administered, the seizures than stopped.  At six oclock the next morning I was looking at my foot and I knew that I had to go to the hospital.


The doctor at the hospital told me that I just had a bad sprain and put a splint on the foot.  It was tight though; after riding a bus for thirty-six hours, my fiancee and I finally got home and then, we went to the ER.  This time they threw away and replaced the splint with a new splint that would allow for the swelling.  After taking X-rays, the next morning, I went to my doctor.  The doctor told me That I had torn ligaments and had a fractured ankle.  The doctor put a fiberglass cast on my right foot up to my calf muscle. 


My family likes my fiancee very much, and her friends liked me.  I do think that this all means that I have found my partner for life.  Epilepsy wise, Ive been having five to eight seizures a month, but I am built tough.  I hope!  Stacey, everyone has their ups and downs, because we are all human.  Im really proud of you for getting off that medicine.  I had always had faith in you as a friend and am always your "cheerleader."  It will come to pass, if you believe in the Lord and let him show you the way.  Trust me, I had a rough trail, but without the Lord I would have had never made it.  The words "give up" are not words as they are thought.  One must think positively when preparing to face the black knight called epilepsy.  Because when you look at epilepsy   negatively it will end up controlling your life.


I believe this epileptics letter is very inspiring.  He shows that you can have a happy life living with epilepsy.  He is able to live a productive and happy life because he does not look at his disorder negatively.
