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 agree 100% that regardless if you have epilepsy or not we can achieve our goals (just have to have opportunities and know how)

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...
