I have Epilepsy.

When I was little, I lived with Epilepsy and, I still do. I don't have as many seizures as I did when I was little but, I still have Epilepsy.

Lill, I'm sorry you have epilepsy. My sister and nephew both have it. Stress sometimes triggers their. And my sister was under a new doc who found one of her meds was causing them more frequently. I can't remember the drug name, but she's been much better since coming off. It was a psych class drug. Praying you don't have them often. Hugs and wishes for a good week for you!🙏🌼

I personally get scared if someone had a seizure in front of me. But I won't treat you any different. I just hope these seizures don't happen too often for u and anyone else for that matter. I feel for those who has to live with it. Hope they can find a cure soon.

When bad things happen, I run towards them and help people. I know what to do. I can figure out what to do. I know how to comfort and calm people down. That being said, when I was sixteen, I had a so called friend. Not really a close one. He had a seizure in the class room. He has epilepsy. I did a horrid thing. I ran away. There were others around. But I was scared and I didn't understand the science behind it. I didn't think he was a demon or anything. I just didn't know how to help him so I fled. In retrospect, I was so ashamed of myself. I felt so bad for so many years down to this day. I always felt like I should have gone back and said I was sorry but since he didn't know what I had done, I figured it was best he didn't. It would only serve myself. I made sure to learn more about it. What to do and what not to do if I am ever in such a situation. I will be ready.

So if you suffered from people who did not understand, we are scared and we are sorry

Lill, I'm not a scientist or an inventor of miracles. Only think I truly wish for from the bottom of my heart is that you take good care of yourself and there's no such thing as epilepsy!!!!!! And many other diseases that are life threatening! I hate life because of those sometimes..but I cherish my wife, my kids, my family my friends and whatever god have given us.

If at this moment if God were to take my family away as well as all the good things in return of. Or above diseases, I would give it up in a heart beat...

In return of eliminating all the fuked up diseases, I would...👆🏻

I may have misunderstood you Octobot, and please don't think I'm not supportive of your feelings, because I am. I believe each of us should express our thought, beliefs, wishes. That's what makes us unique individuals. And it's interesting at how each of us views the world, our lives, our communities, varied medical treatments, etc.

My choice would be different. I wouldn't want to give up my family to be free of illnesses, healthy again. Instead I have actually prayed & asked God that instead of totally healing me... Let my children and grandchildren be healthy and never get sick like me, even if I have to continue being/getting sicker. He can heal me if He wants, but I'd take on more if it means no sickness for them. Regardless of how I feel, it's all in His hands. That's just me. 🙏🌼
