Everyone, yesterday I kicked off my Epilepsy Awareness series!  I wanted to kind of talk about Epilepsy a little bit since a lot of times when I say epilepsy, to my surprise people don’t know what it is or they say something along the lines of “is that kind of like narcolepsy?”  I wanted to talk about epilepsy awareness since November is epilepsy awareness month, and because I was diagnosed back in 2005.  I’ll talk more about my story tomorrow, but for today let me just introduce a little bit about this condition.

The actual definition for epilepsy is as follows:

A disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed, causing seizures.  Can’t be cured, but treatment may help.  Requires a medical diagnosis.  Lab tests or imaging often required.
Epilepsy may occur as a result of a genetic disorder or an acquired brain injusry, such as a trauma or stroke.  During a seizure, a person experiences abnormal behavior, symptoms, and sensations, sometimes including loss of consciousness. 

So that’s just a little bit about epilepsy for now.  Stay tuned for the rest of the week as I talk more about epilepsy and my story.
