‘I felt someone hand-grab my toilet paper roll. ‘Excuse me! Let go!!’ A man was trying to pull it out of my hand. I thought it was a joke.’: Woman says ‘not even diarrhea would make me fight a mob of people to get toilet paper’

“I look in the aisle and there is no toilet paper on the shelves. None. Literally. I was shoved over like it was the last ticket for entry of the Willy Wonka factory. ‘Do you want to call the police?’ All I could picture was me on a witness stand crying hysterically and saying, ‘He tried to rob me of my toilet paper!’”

‘My son’s tiny body was wracked with seizures. I stroked his tense, shaking face, whispering his name that he was safe.’: Mom says her son is a ‘miracle’ despite debilitating Polymicrogyria diagnosis

“This moment was one I’d never in my 33 years of anxiety imagined happening to me. I held my phone steadily pointed towards my little boy, in hopes of capturing his every move on video. I was witnessing something I’d never have wished on the worst of enemies. I searched ‘Polymicrogyria,’ ran to the toilet, threw up my breakfast and curled into a tight ball. When I tell friends my son has a condition that causes epilepsy, they respond by saying, ‘at least that is treatable.’”

‘They tell you to hold the baby. They tell you to forget about your to-do list, because that sweet, little babe is so worth snuggling. And you forget to hold the baby.’: Mom urges to ‘let everything else fall by the wayside’ because nothing is more important

“But they fail to mention how that baby grows. That little one who once rested so perfectly upon your chest doesn’t fit there quite so well anymore. And you forget to hold the baby. But that babe, your growing babe, still needs you.”
