An article by our collaborator Irene Tarragó

Next week is Easter. This year, again, we are going to move it to Calanda, the home of my husband’s family. We will get together with one of our sons and his family, and some nephews with theirs. In total, 16 people. This year my young son can’t come.

It is something that should not be lost in families: the willingness to gather, to allow the cousins to spend time together, because with the times that run and living in Madrid, it is very rare that that third generation, those who today are children, would come together. So we take advantage of these opportunities for them to coexist and get to know each other. Until now, we only gathered at Christmas, and some sporadic occasions. Last year we already met at Easter and this year we will repeat.

The elders of the team are my husband and I and, although we are in charge of the provisioning, since we already bring prepared and frozen food, we will all collaborate there. Last year was great, because we could all enjoy excursions, outings and processions, without anyone being enslaved at home doing housework. It was a team effort and I hope this year it will be as well.

It is something that should not be lost in families: the willingness to gather, to allow the cousins to spend time together…

I hope to continue enjoying my family and life for a long time to come, but I am completely convinced that you have to enjoy life more and not get angry or do it as little as possible, always pull forward, live with what you have been given, without turning it into a daily drama and know there is always, always someone who is much worse than you. I definitely say I’m lucky, despite having two chronic illnesses. But I do not consider myself a sick person, but I mean someone with special circumstances, like everyone else. Does anyone know someone who is exactly the same as him/herself? My father used to say: Everyone has his/her own specific characteristics, and it’s true. We are all different, although we are all the same.

So I encourage you all to enjoy yourselves. As I said in the March article: I, from my small plot of land “will continue fighting for people with epilepsy in general and especially for women”. But I will do it enjoying myself and knowing that the truth goes with me. Also knowing that what I do can help many people, that the simple fact of “talking about epilepsy” is already a step to normalize this disease and to be seen as ordinary people who have a disease. All of the above, so that they do not fear us, nor move away, but no what to do to come and help us if we need it.
