I suffer from seizures and have done for almost 10 years. Please support Epilepsy Awareness and help beat this often debilitating condition. - 💜EPILEPSY AWARENESS💜
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.
Go PURPLE on Tuesday, March 26!
