About Last Saturday

Last Friday and Saturday I started a new medication with the hope that it would help my restlessness. Lately, I've had this inner feeling to always be moving, even though I'm totally exhausted.

I started the medication late last week; to be honest with you, I can't remember which day because as soon as I washed the pill down I started having seizures.

It's been almost five years since my first seizure. After the doctors got them under control I had lost a week; amnesia. On Friday and Saturday, the amnesia was back. I only remember things from last week in 30 second intervals, like waking up at 4:30pm, thinking it was 4:30am and asking why my family was here and why the sun was up so early. I don't remember eating, drinking, using the bathroom, showering, or any other normal routine. This is just a case of "over-medicating," but it's deeply disturbing that a little pill the size of my fingertip can color my world black.
