@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member they always say how there are so many things that are bad for epileptics. I been drinking coffee for the past 43 years. When I get a moco, i pay $0.60 for extra. Just like they say do not listen to meditation and hypnosis if you have seizures. I listen to it almost every night.
