I know this is an ancient flash, and you'll probably never read this, but just for boredom's sake: it started off decent enough, but the ending in all honesty made me roll my eyes. It feels forced and disingenuous as can be, and seemed like it was done for the sake of emotional manipulation. We only see just one seizure, then it follows up with that?

Maybe if we saw more of how this person struggled to function in day-to-day life because of his condition. Constant doctor visits, panics, inability to perform menial tasks most of us consider trivial, etc. and we saw how it tore him apart, before reaching that point. Well... it'd still be corny in my opinion, but it would have more of a foundation to it. Plus, they're kids. That is what really makes it feel even more disingenuous.

I think it would have been better to show how someone with the condition may struggle in day to day life, and how it may inhibit and impair them. If the character used has to die, perhaps it could happen during a particularly bad time? Driving, or falling and hitting their head?

This animation had strong emotional power. A sad story, thx for sharing your film and your brother is in heaven no more pain)


i hate ilnesses who wishes they were nver created i do cause its best u took hw many tablets the doctor tells u to and if it dunt work then go to hospital to get special medcine

scary thought bro

I have myoclonic epilepsy and i gotta say this is eerily realistic. Though i haven't had a seizure in over 2 years, whenever i do i cant stop it. im not even in control. if im alone and have a seizure, ill most likely die. I've never thought of taking my life because of it, but I've thought of how i can die from a seizure. i honestly dont know what i think of this video cuz i can relate to the little brother.

the only question i have is why are all your videos like seriously sad or depressing


episepsy is terrible! but....does foxcat ever make a happy video or atleast help make a happy video?
