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.
