The Epilepsy Foundation has started the "Get seizure smart" campaign. It is a great way to teach people how to help you during a seizure. This website is FILLED with terrific resources to teach people about seizures and epilepsy. http://www.epilepsyfoundation.org/neam/
Epilepsy Fact Sheet! http://www.epilepsyfoundation.org/newsroom/upload/Epilepsy-Month-Fact-Sheet-NEW.pdf
Just google "epilepsy awareness month". You will get plenty of results. However, the best thing YOU can do this month is to share you story with someone who has never heard it before. A co-worker, a friend, a family member, a neighbor, a stranger. anyone! Spread the word!
And it also seems that purple is the color for epilepsy? (someone correct me if that is wrong.) So you could wear A LOT of purple this month. And when people prompt you as to why...there is a perfect time to share your tale.
The goal of this month is AWARENESS. and acceptance.
So, my next blog....will be my complete story. Because if you've looked over my profile, it is filled with my story in bits and pieces. But I will share my story with you....
until next time...stay safe! :o)
