How Would Youmake The World Undestand How It Feels To Live With Epilepsy

How Would Youmake The World Undestand How It Feels To Live With Epilepsy

You see people who make fun of people with grandmal seizures or use them in their pranks.
So how would you go about making them understand what its like to live with epilepsy and what its like in those moments? When i think about how i would go about i can honestly say I dont know and I dont know if i could ever make them understand because they dont walk in my shoes or anyone elses shoes with epilepsy

They wouldn't even when you explain. People still see epilepsy and treat it sometime as a mental health issue.

Like I said before...They see it. But they don’t feel it like we do.

I would say nobody would understand not even the world would understand what it’s like to have epilepsy. Some people see it, they don’t know what it feels like. We feel it, we don’t see it happening to ourselves. It’s like any other disease out there in the world if you don’t have it you won’t be able to have others help you understand what it’s like… because you’re not dealing with it. That’s my opinion.🤷🏻‍♀️
