EPILEPSY AWARENESS MONTH!!!! Yeah, I feel like shouting this from the roof tops. Since meeting my husband, I've always been sensitive to people with Epilepsy because my husband had childhood Epilepsy. Two years ago, our son was diagnosed with Epilepsy and then a few months after that a rare form called ESES or Electrical Status Epilpeticus during Sleep. Its a devastating disease and it has caused a scary roller coaster that sometimes feels like its going derail everything but our son is the sweetest, happy go lucky little man there is and we hope we will be able to say we conquered Epilepsy. Epilepsy is more common than several diseases combined and yet one of the most underfunded medical issues. One in 25 people will have a seizure in their lifetime. ONE IN TWENTY-FIVE!!! So please, wear purple all this month, say a prayer for all the people with Epilepsy and their care-givers, and learn basic seizure first - aid. Thank you!!!!
