I'm just want to say that this post is inspired by Molly Burke. She is a youtuber as well as an activist, and a motivational speaker. Oh, did I also mention that she is blind? After watching her on Shane Dawson's channel I have been on her channel getting to know her. She is so caring an fun and has so much life to her.
Now, let's begin.
1. Epilepsy medication
Always remember to fill your medicine tubes every week, because no one wants to have a seizure. If you are constantly forgetting to take your medication create an alarm whether it's on your phone or on a clock.
2. Epilepsy wrist band
This is optional and all up to your personal preferences. I have a medical ID on my phone that can be accessed easily. Although, I might consider getting a wrist band in the future when I become more independent.
3. an animal assistant
Now, not most people have a dog as an assistant, but if you are living on your own and still have frequent seizures then you might want to consider an animal assistant. You can also hire someone to take care of you, but I don't think anyone is really into that.
4. Educational Support
Most of the time epilepsy does not effect how you learn things, but if it does then I would recommend speaking to someone about educational support services. When I received these at my high school I was not into the whole idea of having help. I liked being independent, and when you have epilepsy that can be difficult to gain independence. Now that I look back on it, I realize that having the chance to receive help was great.
5. Something to reduce your stress
Now, if you have epilepsy or know someone with epilepsy this is truly important. When we get angry or frustrated a seizure can occur and therefore having a hobby or something that helps calm you down is always great. Whenever I get flustered my head starts to hurt, my body begins to shake and part of me feels if I don't relax I will have a seizure.
