Day 5: Let social media inspire you

My assignment for day 5 in Writing101  is called “Let Social Media Inspire You.”  The description for the assignment is:

One of the goals of Writing 101 is to tap into new and unexpected places for post ideas. Today, let’s look to Twitter for inspiration.

Some people who are new to epilepsy have a very simple concept of the chronic illness.  They usually imagine only one specific type of seizure.

If you have a loved one that has epilepsy or maybe you have epilepsy, you have probably felt the need to study more about the chronic illness.   After all, knowledge is power.  As you study more about epilepsy, you find that it is actually very complex.  There are many different types of seizures.  There are epilepsy syndromes such as Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome.  Your treatment options can also get very complex depending on the types of seizures that you have.  We haven’t even started discussing side effects of the medicines yet.

I do not find this twitter quote to be discouraging in any way.  Knowing how little you know about a chronic condition is wisdom.  Most chronic illnesses are in their nature extremely complex to figure out or someone would have found a cure for it long ago.
