Talking about Epilepsy
I've had to answer a lot of questions about epilepsy over the last week. Sometimes I feel comfortable talking about it... sometimes not so much. I'm not sure why. Obviously I'm willing to write about it in detail for over a year now... I think it has to do with having to admit weakness. It may sound silly, but it isn't always easy to acknowledge that you have a condition that renders you completely helpless at times. And maybe it is a bit embarrassing to have your co-workers find you in that situation... I deal with it and try to be a good role-model and spokesperson for people with epilepsy... It's just not always easy.
