It is just over two weeks since my seizures on the evening of 3rd December. My tongue is no longer sore, but it feels like I have just left the dentist; half of it is numb! I sound like the women in that really old EXTRA chewing gum commercial.
Hopefully it improves before school resumes next year. Students are observant and will eventually feel the need to impersonate my new sound.
As I have no intention yet of informing students and thus their parents about my epilepsy, I will have to make up a story.
“I was kidnapped by the Grinch and forced to watch One Direction and Justin Bieber concerts. The resulting nightmares caused a nervous reaction where I chewed my tongue.”
Sounds like a plan…
