Does Or Has Anyone Ever Felt Embarrassed About Telling Someone About Their Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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...
