Epilepsy awareness day

Tomorrow is Epilepsy awareness day, or “Purple day.” Why do I care? As a child I had unpredictable seizures until it was found that fevers were what induced them. This scared my parents to no end. We had to pick up our family and move from our small fishing town to a larger center so that I could get hospital care when I needed it. Fortunately the seizures stopped.

There is a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to Epilepsy, I believe. It’s not something that needs to be feared. It just takes a little education.

Travelling Infinity has gone purple for today and tomorrow in support of Epilepsy awareness. How will you help spread the word?
