I sit writing this as we are on our way back from Leeds after a lovely day at the Epilepsy Action Awards. Sooooo it had been a VERY long week (both my parents are quite poorly) but with Noah having his first sleep over with Nanny& Grandad Chris & I were off to Leeds for the Epilepsy Action Awards. I have to apologise here to my Mother in Law for my untold texts! It has been the longest and furthest I have ever been from Noah! However I am pleased to say he didn’t raise an eyebrow and loved being with his Grandparents, we have the pictures to prove it (see below)! I however cried when I left him and missed him dreadfully.
When I started thinking about this blog I knew I was going to be opening a can of worms. How do you talk about epilepsy? It can be a very emotive topic and I have seen many arguments break out over the years in forums and support groups because of terminology and phrases used. So I decided to do a bit of research for myself.
