30 Days - Living with Epilepsy {Epilepsy Awareness}

It's true - I had hoped to have this big blog series all ready to roll for November 1st but with all of last weekend's festivities I simply haven't been able to make that happen.  Life sometimes gets in the way of the simpliest of things.  So I will begin the series today and hopefully at some point I will have a button for it to share with all. (PSST - the button is up below!)

I'm sure at this point you are wondering what I'm talking about.  My plan to spread Awareness for Epilepsy in November is to blog about it.  I plan to write a blog post for every day of the month for the next 30 days, following a list I made last week which I will share with all of you in a few minutes.  Please feel free to jump in and join me.  Talking about our own personal experiences with Epilepsy is the best way to let others know what it's like.  Why hide in the shadows when we can walk safely into the light and live a somewhat normal life?!

For the entire month of November, I will do my best to answer or direct you to an answer for each of these questions:

Feel free to write from the perspective of being a parent, child or a person with Epilepsy, even a sister or brother with this disorder, however this it affects your life!  The important thing is that the more we talk, the more we share, the more people come to understand how this disorder works and affects us all!

So get out there and SHARE!  Spread the word for Epilepsy Awareness!!!  I look forward to reading everyone of your posts.
