DEHYDRATION AND EPILEPSY: Some people may not know this but dehydration can be considered as a seizure trigger. Many people, including myself, need to keep hydrated to ensure that they do not have any seizures. To overcome this, I keep a water bottle with me and I try (but failing spectacularly) to drink more water. Since it is summer and the temperatures are rising (especially here in the UK), make sure you are drinking water constantly, even if you're not thirsty • • • • • • • • • • #epilepsy #epilepsyawareness #epileptic #epilepseed #epilepsypositivity #epilepsywarrior #epilepsyaction #epilepsysociety #seizure #seizures #epilepsysucks #seizuressuck #seizuredisorder #epileptic #design #graphicdesign #pen #fineliner #sketchwork #sketchbook #sketch #sketching #instagram #instadoodle #illustration #illustrations

EPILEPSY AND DEPRESSION: Seeing as how the month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month, I wanted to acknowledge the effect that depression can have, especially with someone diagnosed with epilepsy. Epilepsy can be a daunting condition to live with but it doesn't and shouldn't be something that you have to live with alone. There are always support and resources available to everyone and if you are having negative feelings, there is no harm in getting help. We all need a little help sometimes, whether we like it or not. • • • • • • • • • • #epilepsy #epilepsyawareness #epileptic #epilepseed #epilepsypositivity #epilepsywarrior #epilepsyaction #epilepsysociety #seizure #seizures #epilepsysucks #seizuressuck #seizuredisorder #epileptic #design #graphicdesign #pen #fineliner #sketchwork #sketchbook #sketch #sketching #instagram #instadoodle #illustration #illustrations

EPILEPSY CHARITY: You know how I said that @epilepsyaction was one of two charities that helped educate me on epilepsy. Well, @epilepsysociety was the other one. Information leaflets provided by Epilepsy Society helped me come to terms as to what my condition is and what it entails. Epilepsy Society is the UK's leading provider of epilepsy services. They provide essential resources through their 'cutting edge research, awareness campaigns, information resources and expert care, working for everyone affected by epilepsy in the UK'. Take a look at their website for more information about what they do and help them do more by becoming an Epilepsy Society volunteer. • • • • • • • • • • #epilepsy #epilepsyawareness #epileptic #epilepseed #epilepsypositivity #epilepsywarrior #epilepsyaction #epilepsysociety #seizure #seizures #epilepsysucks #seizuressuck #seizuredisorder #epileptic #design #graphicdesign #pen #fineliner #sketchwork #sketchbook #sketch #sketching #instagram #instadoodle #illustration #illustrations

EPILEPSY CHARITY: When I was first diagnosed with epilepsy, I didn't know what it was, nor did I know what I would expect from it. The doctor treating me at the time gave me some information pages about epilepsy and I'm glad to say that one of the two charities that the information was from was Epilepsy Action. They helped educate me and helped me understand my condition, as a whole, better. Epilepsy Action is a UK based charity aimed at helping people living with epilepsy. They are a 'community of people committed to a better life for everyone affected by epilepsy'. They provide essential resources by giving expert advice, raising awareness by campaigning and so much more. For more information on Epilepsy Action, visit their website.

MEDICAL IDENTIFICATION: Wearing a medical bracelet or keeping a card in your belongings would be useful, especially if you experience a seizure outside. Companies such as @tap2tag , @medicalertfoundation or @sos_talisman , to name a few, provide innovative and even stylish ways to keep identification with you at all times. Be sure to check out these websites. There are a lot of other companies that provide them too.

Keeping people informed and aware about epilepsy and first aid is very important and could save a lot of time and resources if someone knew what they needed to do in the event of a tonic-clonic seizure. Due to many people being unaware of what they need to do, I created an information card detailing what they should do. (It is a first draft but any feedback or criticism is welcome. They also go back to back.). I hope you guys approve!! • • • • • • • • • • #epilepsy #epilepsyawareness #epileptic #epilepseed #epilepsypositivity #epilepsywarrior #epilepsyaction #epilepsysociety #seizure #seizures #epilepsysucks #seizuressuck #seizuredisorder #epileptic #design #graphicdesign #pen #fineliner #sketchwork #sketchbook #sketch #sketching #instagram #instadoodle #illustration #illustrations
