"While my friends were raging with hormones and consumed with thoughts of boys and shopping, I was just wondering how I would get on with the day and what classes I would miss due to hospital appointments.

Dylan just wants to be a normal little boy who doesn't need someone watching everything he does all the time. In Dylan's journal, he writes, "Yes, today was awesome. I only got 2 seizures today. That blew my socks off. Tomorrow I want to have an even better day. Let's go for 1 seizure, or better yet, 0 seizures."
"Having epilepsy was a topic I ignored most of my life because of the embarrassment I felt when other people knew I had epilepsy. I was bullied in high school and kids called me 'seizure boy'."
