I’ve debated writing a blog about epilepsy for a while. But questions in my mind – What do I say? Will anyone read it? What will people think? – kept me from actually doing it. I hesitated because throughout my life I have had people judge me because of having epilepsy. Whether it was not wanting to be friends, turning me down for a date, or even not hiring me for a job; I have found many times that when people hear the word epilepsy, they often back away.
