Another purple thumb for you today in support of Epilepsy awareness month. Please remember to email me your purple manis so I can post within my post. firstname.lastname@example.org
Below I have written down a couple myths/misconceptions about Epilepsy. There is a huge stigma when it comes to Epilepsy. I think every person with epilepsy gets a little pissed when people make ridiculous assumptions
MYTH :You can swallow your tongue while having a seizure.
For those of you who took biology or have a tongue of your own you will notice that its connected to the bottom of your mouth.(if you sense sarcasm its because I'm laying it on pretty thick)
MYTH: People with Epilepsy are disabled
People with Epilepsy have the same range of intelligence and abilities as everyone else. Physically and mentally we are no different!
MYTH: Epilepsy is a disease
Epilepsy is chronic medical condition. You can not catch it
MYTH: You can’t die from epilepsy
You can! Prolonged seizures can result in death.
I received an email from Zana at NailCrazy with her lovely purple mani. Go check it out!!!
