WORLD EPILEPSY DAY

Epilepsy is an assortment of different types of seizures originating from several mechanisms that have in common the sudden excessive discharge of cerebral neurons. It may result in:
-Loss off consciousness
-A typical or odd behavior
-Distorted perceptions
This day is also known as “Purple Day” as people are encouraged to wear the color to increase awareness of Epilepsy.

World Epilepsy Day promotes awareness in more than 120 countries each year.
People join together to celebrate and highlight the problems faced by people with epilepsy, their families and careers. This is a day for everyone, no matter where you are, no matter how small your group or large your area, no matter whether you focus on the medical or the social aspects of the disease. 

“When you have an invisible illness, it’s hard to explain to someone who doesn’t have a clue.
It’s a daily struggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside, when you mostly look fine on the outside.”
{Simply epilepsy quotes}
