13 People Describe What It’s Like to Have Epilepsy
When a person has had two or more #seizures unprovoked by specific events (such as trauma, infection, fever or chemical change), that person is considered to have #epilepsy, a condition that affects 65 million people worldwide, according to Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE). However, because of the complex nature of the #brain, a lot of unknowns and therefore misconceptions exist around epilepsy, making it hard for others to understand it.
