With just 2 sleeps until the big day, thank you to @iwudratherpole for sharing how Purple day has started conversations about peopleโ€™s connections with epilepsy ๐Ÿ’œ โ€œBy celebrating Purple Day and having more conversations about Epilepsy, I have had some really lovely, deep and enlightening conversations with this little gem whoโ€™s mama has had epilepsy all her life. It seemed like a distant world...until you start having conversations. Start talking today and you could find out more about your nearest and dearest.โ€ #purpleday #purpleday2019 #epilepsywarrior #epilepsy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsysupport #epileptic #seizure #seizures #seizuressuck #seizurefree #poledance #poledancer #poledancing

โ€œIt was such a shock when I was told I couldnโ€™t drive for a year and completely changed my life. I felt quite isolated.โ€ - Mel ๐Ÿ’œ This Purple day, weโ€™re asking you to be the conversation starter and get people talking about epilepsy. Mel has shared how it felt when she was told she couldnโ€™t drive. What one thing would you like people to know about epilepsy this Purple day? #epilepsy #purpleday #purpleday2019 #purpleday2018 #purple #epilepsyawareness #epilepsysupport #epilepsywarrior #seizure #seizures #seizurefree #epileptic #seizuressuck #drivingtest #drivinglicense

This evening, Paige, our Marketing and Communications Executive, went to see Christina Murdockโ€™s award-winning play, Dangerous Giant Animals at the Vault Art Festival in Waterloo, London. An honest and moving piece about the impacts of growing up with a sister with epilepsy and other needs, and the wider impacts disability can have on the entire family. Thank you for a wonderful performance Christina ๐Ÿ’œ @murdockmusings #DangerousGiantAnimals @vaultfestival #vaultfestival #epilepsy #epilepsysupport #epilepsyawareness #seizures #seizurefree #disability #invisibledisability

Today, 8 March, is International Women's Day, celebrating women's achievements around the world. At Epilepsy Society we have launched our 'Me and My Shadow' scheme, where we provide opportunities for women with epilepsy to shadow women in a range of different careers for a day. The hosts participating in 'Me and My Shadow' are from Epilepsy Society, our pharmaceutical partner, UCB, the Middlesex NHS Trust and the Saracens Multi-Academy Trust. Here we celebrate just a few of the women who have been making a difference in the field of epilepsy. #internationalwomensday #internationalwomensday2019 #epilepsy #balanceforbetter Visit bit.ly/2H7IKrI
