Essential Epilepsy Information Idea: Help Raise Epilepsy Awareness

Essential Epilepsy Information Idea: Help Raise Epilepsy Awareness

Sat down inside student accommodation, people around me gain confidence, socialise and share thoughts of their early experiences as young adults. Typical higher standards are gaining power over what I know were much crappier high school times for many people there. For plenty of people, it’s a well-earned relief. But I’m sat, not standing. I’m keeping myself clear of other students because sharing my thoughts doesn’t gain me confidence; it gets me down. Thoughts come from the brain, but the…

Epilepsy & Pregnancy: How to Safely Play Your Little Ace

Epilepsy & Pregnancy: How to Safely Play Your Little Ace

Before a fair bit of research, I can’t claim to have known much about today’s topic. I’m only just beginning my career as a writer, and can’t help but feel that maintaining a relationship is a too risky business for me. I just don’t have the energy for it right now. But I promise myself, my family, and my friends, that when finances are better fixed, and my career is moving smoothly, finding a woman I love will be a…

A Dubious Brain’s Way to Deal with Depression

A Dubious Brain’s Way to Deal with Depression

If you’ve followed my blog or know me well, then you’ll understand that my life over the past ten years has been shaky. More often than not, I was duller than decent; I had a low mood. I was often anxious, tired and frustrated. I lacked motivation. I’d overthink about everything. At times, I’d get angry with myself and with other people as well. It was all my most negative era, and knowing I had all of these feelings on…

My Light’s Getting a Bit Brighter – Personal Review: September 2017

Hello, readers! It might sound a little self-centred, but it’s always a pleasure to write about myself for you. People seem to like what I write, but I’ll be checking Google Analytics to find out for sure after it’s been published online. September has been so focused on my writing career: I’ve been talking to fellow writers and editors; I’ve been getting people to connect with me on LinkedIn; it’s grown ever more natural to make personal comments about epilepsy…

Epilepsy News: September 2017

Epilepsy News: September 2017

So, epilepsy in September 2017: which side won, negative or positive? It’s difficult to say. I guess if you know the general story of the top two articles, then you might see this as a lamer-than-average month. But as always, people kept the positives moving. September included one annual event I appreciate – National Doodle Day – a time of the year when people offloading epilepsy can see clear-cut progress made as celebrities doodles are auctioned on eBay. When the…

Young Epilepsy: A Few Practical Steps To Smoothly Find your Peak Height

Young Epilepsy: A Few Practical Steps To Smoothly Find your Peak Height

For me, high school was a positive place. I knew I had epilepsy, but there aren’t many negative memories that were brought on by my condition. Although it led to a few seizures, whenever it did, I managed to shrug it off with a laugh. Most of the time, it all seemed under control with a little dose of my medication. I remember when I had a strange spell in English class once. From what I remember, we were told…

How Healing Each Wound Can Keep Planes in Full Flight: What is SUDEP?

How Healing Each Wound Can Keep Planes in Full Flight: What is SUDEP?

In previous posts, I’ve talked about how more epilepsy awareness would bring a boost to the lives of so many people. I’ve also mentioned that epilepsy is a complicated condition – although I’m writing this blog, I don’t understand everything about epilepsy. And the specialist doctors? With all due respect, if any, it’s not many. In fact, when people chat to their doctor about their epilepsy, one important talking point is often avoided. I’d say their patients know what it…
