    I have the catamenial type where the seizures only happen during one's menstrual cycle. It seems like my body didn't like what was going on. I see a doctor, take my meds, and I have done very well; only a few times the meds had to be tweaked

    Sam and Arnold hang around a street performer named Karen. They are told by Mr. Drummond to not see her anymore, because he does not like the idea of them hanging around with her. She has a seizure, and Sam and Arnold are terrified. Good episode. I liked the humor aspect (the milkshake thing, whilst offensive, is still funny) and I liked the seriousness of it too. B+/A- as my final grademoreless
