A representation of what I go through when I have a major epileptic seizure.

During my seizures I am terrified and unable to communicate what I see and sense; i.e. that my entire universe is blowing up with explosions of light and colour. This is caused by a misfire or surge in the normal activity of the neuron cells in my brain.

In the aftermath, I will be crying, confused, exhausted, and headachy. It is terrifying to be trapped in a prison of my brain's own making.
