Does Or Has Anyone Ever Felt Embarrassed About Telling Someone About Their Seizures?

Does Or Has Anyone Ever Felt Embarrassed About Telling Someone About Their Seizures?

Or on another note, has anyone ever been a little scared of telling someone you feel like you’re about to have one but end up not? Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t tell my parents or sister because then they’re going to overreact a little after the feeling went completely away.

I like telling people that I'm epileptic. People ask me all sorts of questions and teaching people that its not always what they think.

Yes I always feel embarrassed to say that I have seizures cause I don't like the treatment of the other people.. I don't be wanting to scare other people...

I was born with epilepsy and have never ever took a second thought about hiding my seizures. It's been part of my whole life.

its not embarrassment its the stigma attached with it... I tend to judge who I want to tell and who I do not want to as they do not understand nor accept. I get tired of people saying "well you don't look sick, so are you disabled in someway?"
