I recently had a conversation with a Professional guy from India. His Employer's have told him to cure himself of Epilepsy. They have tried to sack him. Not paid him since February this year. He's angry and upset understandably.
There is no Cure for Epilepsy to date..
This is an appalling state of affairs. The ignorance and stigma should not be like this in the 21st century. He's shunned. Isolated and some think he's possessed. I really
had so much empathy and somewhat angry, this poor man was suffering so badly. I just couldn't believe in this modern age what I was listening to.
He told me he wanted Sudep to take him ( sudden unexplained death of Epilepsy ) I could have cried for
him. I emailed his Employer's and the Indian Prime Minister. Epilepsy is not recognised as a neurological condition. Serious awareness needs implemented in Countries where this negative attitude & misunderstandings are so wrong.
Epilepsy is not
contagious and you cannot catch it from someone.
I need you all whom read my Blog to shout Epilepsy Awareness from the highest of high. Email MP''s. Email your government's. This needs realtime Global intervention.
needs a Cure.
