  1. My sister had epilepsy too and it was scary whenever she had seizures. But she took medicine for a long time and suddenly her seizures happened less and less until they completely went away. Her version must have been less severe. But it was still scary. I was too young to understand all the triggers so this article is eye-opening. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I had no idea there were so many things to consider with the summer right around the corner. It definitely gives me more empathy for those with epilepsy, especially where I live in Florida.
