I really struggled with this one. I don’t think I have ever tried this before. In day 12 of my Chronic Illness Challenge, we briefly explain to a healthy person what it is like to live with this illness.
Epilepsy is very different from person to person. You cannot assume person A will have the same symptoms and problems as person B because they both have epilepsy. While some people are photosensitive, strobe lights do not bother me.
I can’t do things that some other people can do (ie. rock climbing). Epilepsy has placed limitations on my life. I will not be climbing Mt. Everest any time soon.
Epilepsy medicines are known for nasty side effects. Please do not be offended if I can’t remember stuff. If I have hand tremors, it is probably because I drank too much caffeine that day. It is another side effect of my medicine. Fatigue is a prominent side effect also.
