3/23 โ€œI donโ€™t let one word define meโ€ Thatโ€™s the spirit! Being a wife, mom, daughter...etc she still stands super strong! Keep it up Jess ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’œ . . . . Epilepsy has effected me by I see a neurologist & an epileptologist on a regular basis. Due to my seizures not being controlled, Iโ€™ve had my right temporal lobe removed twice. One surgery resulted in a stroke & one was successful. Iโ€™m currently taking two medications & seizures. Yes. I am epileptic, but I donโ€™t let one word define me. Iโ€™m a wife, mother, daughter, etc....

3/22/2019 (backlogged) Iโ€™ve been slacking on posts, again. Guinness is struggling with his sound sensitivity still be that hasnโ€™t stopped him from tasking. On Friday he was being extra clingy and at the end of the day I had another seizure. He successfully alerted. He is such a good boy!

Reposted from @reconnect4autism I suffer from seizures and have done for almost 10 years. Please support Epilepsy Awareness and help beat this often debilitating condition. - ๐Ÿ’œEPILEPSY AWARENESS๐Ÿ’œ Purple Day is an international grassroots effort dedicated to increase awareness about Epilepsy worldwide. On March 26, 2019, people all over the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness. DID YOU KNOW? Epilepsy affects over 65 million people worldwide, but many in the general public know little about it and much of what they know is incorrect. When you hear the word "epilepsy" most of us give a description which describes a grand mal seizure- Violent jerking and convulsions. While this is one type of seizure, there are so many other types which include clonic, tonic, absence, myoclonic, atonic, etc. Some hidden signs include short attention blackouts (appearing as daydreaming), sudden falls for no reason, dazed behavior, lack of response for brief periods, head nodding, rapid blinking, etc. There is no "cure" for epilepsy, but there are treatments and surgeries available. Please help spread awareness. Awareness saves lives. ๐Ÿ’œ Go PURPLE on Tuesday, March 26! ๐Ÿ’œ Check this out for more info: http://www.purpleday.org/aboutepilepsy #epilepsy #epilepsyawareness #seizures #health #epilepsywarrior #love #inspiration #support #AimForZero #awareness #reconnect4autism #community

Waktu itu saya masih duduk di kelas 6 SD, sebelum pulang sekolah, kami saling membagikan cokelat kepada teman sekelas dan saat itu juga, nafas saya seperti berhenti, pandangan kabur dan tiba-tiba semua gelap. . . . . . Ketika saya bangun, saya sudah terbaring di ruang kepala sekolah dan jemputan saya sudah menunggu di luar untuk pulang ke rumah. Saya tidak bisa ingat apapun setelah proses โ€˜ritualโ€™ hari kasih sayang itu. Saya hanya tahu, bahwa lidah saya kelu dan kepala terasa sangat berat. . . . . . Sering mempertanyakan, mengapa saya harus memiliki penyakit yang tidak saya ketahui . . . . .

I went to the Epilepsy Public Forum done by the MUN Student Interest Group in Neurology today and it was a wonderful learning experience. I also won a half day kayaking tour from @theoutfittersnl from a random draw. It's fantastic when businesses support the awareness and the people involved in things like this. Thank you and don't forget to wear purple on the March 26th for #epilepsyawareness. #epilepsynl ( photo credits to @wrctwien )

Hi everyone we are about a month out from Danโ€™s birthday, our second without him, and I wanted to remind you that you can donate the Dan Rafferty Memorial Fund through the The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado anytime. Contributions made to this fund will go towards an emergency fund for immediate assistance for those with epilepsy, programs focused on helping individuals experiencing isolation and depression due to epilepsy, and it will support children going to camp to experience the joy of being a kid. #epilepsy #deedsfordan #epilepsyfoundation #epilepsyawareness #epilepsywarrior #myepilepsyhero #danrafferty #efco #colorsofthemindgala #seizures #donate #makeadifference #danraffertymemorialfund #epilepsysupport

I donโ€™t think even this smile is big enough. WOW! Just WOW! I donโ€™t know how to thank you all for coming out and making the first ever Walking Beside You Purple Day Bush Walk such an amazing day! It meant so much to me that so many people were willing to spend their Saturday supporting @epilepsyactionaustralia and also supporting me personally. I feel completely blessed and humbled by all the love I felt yesterday. Since my first seizure in November, I feel like I have been on a constant rollercoaster of ups and downs. It feels like a massive spanner has been pelted into the middle of my life but seeing a sea of purple staring back at me yesterday reminded me that Iโ€™m not doing this journey alone. So whether you came for a short time or a long time, couldnโ€™t come but sent me a message of support or donated to my fund, thank you. Thank you for showing me and everyone living with Epilepsy that you care. We are not alone. We are supported. We are loved. A massive thank you for my Mumma for which if it wasnโ€™t for her, yesterday would not have happened. To TOP JUICE Erina, thank you so much for donating all the water and fruit salad to keep everyone hydrated and nourished! It was to die for! To everyone who picked up something, dropped off something, hung something, cooked something, donated something, posted something on your social media, drove a long or short distance. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. At first count it looks like we have raised nearly $600 with more coming in! I hope you all had as much fun as I did...maybe we might have to make it an annual thing? What do you guys think? ๐Ÿ’œ to you all! #purpleday #purpleday2019 #epilepsy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsyactionaustralia #brisbanewaternationalpark #girrakoollooptrack #bushwalk #allthepurple #purplefairy #charitybushwalk #charityevent #topjuiceerina #familydayout #smile #sothankful #purple #motherhood #mummawithepilepsy #parenthood #parenting #mumblog #mummyblogger #walkingbesideyou #centralcoastnsw #guby #growingupbesideyou

โ€” โ€œI was diagnosed at the age of 14, one year after a car accident. When I figured out my first neurologist allowed me to driveโ€ฆ it was all new to my family and I, so we went for it. Later on, I turned 15 and got a second opinion. Hearing the words I could never play sports again made me depressed. He soon suggested a second opinion. My new neurologist didnโ€™t not allow me to drive, which made perfect sense. Later on, they started to get more aggressive and life threatening. They put me on Onfi and it started to help a little bit. After week long EEGs, I had a few clear EEGs. Almost to 16 I wasnโ€™t 6 months free. I thought there was no point into doing anything because all my friends could stay out later than me, go to school dances, and have fun times. At age 16 I finally just wanted to give up. With help of my community, friends, and family I got through it. Now Iโ€™m 17 taking 9 pills a day not able to drive but thatโ€™s not gonna stop me from living my life.โ€ - @abbyholmes.22 // via @epilepsy.talk So many obstacles with epilepsy, but we will get through it like the warriors we are! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ #epilepsyawareness #epilepsy #epilepsywarrior #epilepsylife #epilepsyfighter #epilepsyadvocate #epilepsystrong #invisableillness #survivor #purpleribbon #awareness #chronicepilepsy
