Yeah ~ what really sucks is the stigma that is attached to the word "EPILEPSY". People look at you differantly.
That's why I like to say that I have a "SEIZURE CONDITION" rather than Epilepsy cuz it sounds better.
People think if you have "EPILEPSY" you will have convulsions all the time but EP can take so many differant forms and people should be made aware of this. In fact there are probably a lot of people out there that have it in some form that don't even know it.
The general public is not educated in this area. We have to raise awareness and make people aware that there are a lot of famous people that have/had Epilepsy.
Diagnosed with epilepsy and ulcerative colitis in 1979,
Been on meds ever since.
