How not to be a victim

a picture with no words?

Share with:


When i say a picture with no words, what i mean is when someone has there picture taken. Even if you smile it could be a plastic smile and nobody knows the emotion you feel inside. When i fractured my right cheekbone after a fall. I took a picture and from the image you couldn’t tell if i was upset or angry.

Genuinely wasn’t feeling angry or upset i had hurt myself, in-fact i was more frustrated that my little sister and my mum had to witness it. Straight after i came around my mum told me the very first thing i asked “Mum are you ok” many people would question why would you ask that?

My mum had two severe strokes in 2015 and she’s now in a wheelchair and i was more angry because i know she couldn’t do anything. I didn’t want her feeling bad so i actually posted a picture of my face 2 minutes after paramedics sat me in the back of the ambulance.

I hope the people who’ve just read that are shaking there head in laughter because yea it is pretty funny. When i posted it the first thing i asked people was “Hey everyone look I’ve made an improvement to my face haha” That’s the sort of attitude i have towards my epilepsy. I’m literally always joking about myself and laughing

I believe that’s what this world needs, Just a little laughter……I mean yea it does depend on what side of the laughter you are on. E.g. If your laughing at the person with epilepsy or any disability then your are a complete scumbag but if your laughing with the person and they’re making jokes about themselves then fair enough laugh away.
