: I think someone should put a website up about the real deal about epilepsy. The crap they put on the internet is shit. It isn't true. I read on one site that one with epilepsy may not be able to get a higher education, keep a job, get married, and have kids. That is SO not true!! I'm in a very loved relationship, maintaining a job and have straight 'a's in school. Where do all these dumb peole get this crap??? Anybody with me?? If so, e-mail me.
Hey Lora? The real deal about epilepsy is that it's just like any other disorder or disease. Some people have it worse than others. For some people epilepsy is a mild nuisance and for others it is a life altering nightmare which can severely diminish one's lifestyle. People who talk about the adverse effects of epilepsy are not dumb. They are living it everyday. You, on the other hand, are so lucky that you are living a full and happy life. Your seizures are mild and they haven't interfered with the way you function. You are truly blessed. You go, girl!
