Question: What should you not say to someone with epilepsy?

Dont dismiss epilepsy as “No big deal.” Dont ask if the condition came from something the person did. Dont say, “I know how you feel.” Unless youve been treated for the same type of condition and have undergone the same treatment, you really dont know how the person feels.

How do you tell your friends you have epilepsy?

Reassure them that youre just like everyone else, except you have seizures – sometimes. People react differently but if you feel annoyed, hurt or disappointed about the way they react or respond, just be upfront and tell them how you feel. It might take some pressure off them as well.
