Epilepsy and Holiday Awareness

  • Posted on November 1, 2011 at 7:25 pm

I am going to do the one bout “holidays” etc and how even tho its a great occasion for everyone people with Epilepsy will probably dred them. I know I do.. I would like to have any people that go to bars think about the lighting and strobe lights when they go into a bar. I know there are a lot of people that say “WHAT DO YOU EXPECT WHEN YOU GO TO A BAR” but seriously this is a medical condition that no one can help and certainly no one has asked to have epilepsy. Just because I have epilepsy doesn’t mean I have to stay at home and can’t go out and enjoy things the way everyone else does. I think that it is about time that bar owners realize that the lighting can cause people to have issues with your health. The more they know the better it is. They have to be aware of the risks people are taking and how many people can not go into their establishment so not only is it not fair to the people that would like to go into their bars etc but they are loosing money on loosing customers.

It is sad that if you bring it up as they will loose money they are more apt to change things.

Halloween: I really enjoy going out to bars on Halloween and seeing everyone dressed up in costumes. The problem is there are a lot of bars that have either flashing lights or the strobe lights on. I don’t like drawing attention to myself and asking them to turn the lights off or not to turn the lights on. I have to call ahead or ask some people that go to the certain bars if they have the lights on and if they are, that means I can’t go to the bar. Photo Epilepsy there are a lot of different variants of photo epilepsy. I have it so bad that even the flashing lights of a car can set me into a seizure. I am not saying or expecting people to go out and not have a good time, or to have pitty or feel sorry for me because that is the last thing that I want. I do not like pitty parties.

Please make people aware that even Halloween and some of the flashing lights are dangerous for others.

Really do you need the lights on strobe or flashing to have a good time when it can help someone just get out. I am asking people to make aware some bars or establishments in your area of these simple things that can give someone a night out and way to have a good time as well as you .
