Talking relief

A while back I met a guy who had seizures. I felt so much relief. I always knew I wasn't the only one but meeting someone with seizures just made it seem so real.

I am not sure if you are aware of the statistics re cases of epilepsy, but there are More than 2.5 Million Americans with epilepsy and More than 125,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. Notice that I said Diagnosed each year. It sometimes takes a lopng time to get diagnosed correctly so for that many to get diagnosed every year tells me that many more than that develop or begin each year. I even read stats that said that number was really more like 189,000 new cases every year. It is the most common neurological illness next to Headaches. You do indeed have company. Tattoo
