Helmet Help

Hello there,

    I have a question or two for those of you who suffer from drop seizures. Do you wear a helmet or not? If so, what is the worst part and the best part about the helmet? When your talking about your helemt referencing the brand/type would be helpful to me too. If you don't wear a helmet but suffer from drop seizures, do you have other methods of protecting yourself from injury? Is there a reason you perfer not to wear a helmet or how is it that you can get around not having to wear a helmet? I've looked at a number of helmets but they all seem a bit intimidating to me and intrusive to my life. Just looking for any suggestions and want to know other's experiences. Thanks.
