My sinister fits

Out of many days of my disturbed life
This year twenty thirteen is a blessing
I have ever seen -a satisfied wish.
I am now free from often fits for life.

In the previous years, I have prayed from
The ruding consciousness and wield disease.
Morning to night fever; morning and night fit:
A half of my age in the midst of storm.  

If it is headache, I would say 'normal',
But it is abrupt migraine. When it strikes,
It can make the patient seems like a liar
Before those that know when he is normal.

This migraine is not the usual fair ache,
It's one outlandish momentary freeze-
Freezing brain, closing sight and freezing quill.
'Unorthodox! Isn't it?' was my ache.

    You described my day yesterday. Still through the pain I forced myself to write, I try to write something each day to keep my skills sharp. The migraine makes it virtually impossible to concentrate.

    gosh, this sounds horrible to have such a pain. My sister suffers greatly from migraines as well. Scribe says you are using migraine as metaphor. is that true?

    As Rick rightly observed 'Migraines are no fun' and so is my piece. Andrea, this piece is a whole taut about one challenging episode of my life and that of my twin brother. Thus, migraine' I used is not as metaphor but as its obvious truth about me... Though, I hv no experience of it since the beginning of this year. That is why I concluded with '...was my life' to show, by faith, it has ended.
