More people have epilepsy than you are aware. Many people you know have it but they just wanted to tell you later, for fear that you won’t be their friend or something.
All you need is a blow on the head, high fever, convulsions, severe enough infection or a coma and you could acquire it. I had all those things and nearly died before my second birthday.
In other words, everyone is susceptible epilepsy under the right circumstances.
I was diagnosed with complex partial epilepsy when I was 9 years old, but I had simple partial seizures when I was four but didn’t know how to describe them. Many seizures are difficult to describe, because they don’t feel like pain, but rather a sensation.
I will always be a spokesperson for those who have the disorder and care about those who disabled because of my experiences as now a mature young minded senior of 55.
I hope to make this newsletter make money (monetize it) this year and work with CURE Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy to use their 501C3 tax status and accept private nations from people and foundations and companies giving them banner ads.
Say prayers all this, with my tenacity becomes a reality. I have how do you touch bases with someone in marketing from cure already and so the wheels are turning in a very positive direction.
