What do you mean you’re paralyzed?Like, I can’t move right now.How is that possible? That’s an excellent question. This was the beginning of a conversation between me and a friend a few nights ago when she witnessed, for the first time, a very real and scary manifestation of my movement disorder: temporary generalized paralysis.
I’d never been around other people when a paralysis tic had hit, so this was a first for me as well. I was actually paralyzed before she and another friend came over to my apartment that night.
I was sitting on the ground leaning against my couch, so at first glance, it wouldn’t have looked like anything was wrong when they first walked in.
