I have an idea in mind. A majority of the people here have epilepsy or know a loved one who has the medical condition. I would like to spread the awareness through sharing personal experiences with it and putting a positive twist on it. Epilepsy is not all that bad. It is the way that others look at it that make it seem like the most horrible thing in the world. For example, I show Epilepsy Awareness through the bracelets that I have and the tattoo that I have. It might not be much but it is a confidence booster.
Share the positive sides of your lives with Epilepsy and your own type of seizures. It will make others more understanding of you. The support groups will back you up 150% with helpful advice. In addition to that, tell others how Epilepsy has made a positive contribution to you.
For me, it has taught me to be more understanding and sensitive to others feelings.
Epilepsy is not a reason to feel sorry for yourself or make others do the same. It is something to make you stronger. So why not show everyone and prove to yourself that you are more than just a person with Epilepsy. ROCK IT OUT!!!!!
