I have been living with a challenging life long health condition since I was 12 and have often felt quite alone in how to manage the problems it has caused throughout the years. There have been times when I have wondered what life would have been like not to have seizures.
I wouldn’t be the me I am today without the experiences I have had. I like who I am today and so l in my old age I am philosophical that this has happened for a reason. It has been a long learning curve I wanted to share the knowledge and ideas I have in relation to epilepsy,neurology, in particular idiopathic epilepsy (where there is no cause found). it is most likely that in my case it is genetic. This means I’m a mutant (my friends would defiantly agree).
On a happy note so were Einstein and Julius Cesar… in fact so numerous are we that Wikipedia has helpfully provided a list
So you see we are in good company!
It has been my personal holy grail to find out why I have this interesting relationship with bioelectricity and my neurons. I wanted to share with others my thoughts and strategies for condition management relating to the often much misunderstood health problem commonly known as epilepsy.
Some people mistakenly think epilepsy is a mental health problem, others a learning disability. I find it helpful to think of it as a neurological disorder.Epilepsy action make it more broad than that:
If you are a health care professional, researcher, scientist, family member, friend to a person with epilepsy or person with an interest I hope you find this useful.
If you have epilepsy two I hope that this helps.
Disability is all in the mind, you can do anything you set your mind to don’t let anybody else disable you.
