Epilepsy


Hi beautiful people,

Before we dig in, I would like to point out the following ; 


Epilepsy is not a mental health condition but a neurological one, the reason i speak of the two is because of my dual diagnosis as well as similarities in the stigma and myths epilepsy and mental health conditions face.

    Living with Epilepsy Series
    In 2014, when i had just moved to my own place, YoTM asked me to share about life with epilepsy,  we split the discussion into 6 episodes where we touched on Moving Out, Work, Education, Fun, Faith and Love 

    I hope these episodes will help you get the information you are looking for and let you know that a diagnosis is not a death sentence, you can go on to be who you want to be with the proper information and support. Feel free to write to me on the contact form on the side bar or simply text my organization, My Mind My Funk FREE of charge on 22214. (the free text line is currently out of service)

    6. Love
