No2Pencil 3 months ago I have epilepsy disorder myself and was getting 5 to 6 seizures per week at one point. It is interesting that people who are living in one of the most developed countries like the USA, still don't know enough about it and have a lot of misconceptions. So, thank you! Somebody, at least, is talking.
