Type your paragraph here.
Talking about your seizures is hard. People ask too many questions you can't answer. You look in their confused faces and feel like you can read their minds.
They think too hard about what you're telling them. They feel differently about you. They think you're less capable than a person without seizures. They try to picture you having a seizure. They worry about you having a seizure.
All these things might be true. We might get these feelings because it's how we feel when we find out someone has epilepsy. The important thing is to remember you have an opportunity to teach.
By explaining your condition, teaching people how to react if someone has a seizure, and standing tall as a capable person with a common disorder, you do us all a favor.
Not talking can eventually be more difficult than actually sharing your story. But that doesn't mean you have to announce yourself every time you enter a room. You know when the time is right. Take hold of the moments you are given, and remember, your brain may emit too much electricity on occasion, but it doesn't handicap you.
Accept, connect, embrace who you are, flawed as you may be. Remember we all have our challenges.
To Talk… Or Not to Talk.
Talking about epilepsy is easier when you know the facts.
