For years, I didn't consider myself an epileptic like other who had epilepsy. I had only had maybe ten grande mal seizures in my childhood and once I was put on medications as a teen I never had another grand mal (full body convulsions). But then my seizures switched to a absence type where my eyes would "roll" up or back in my head and I would maybe lose a second or two of time. With this change of type I didn't really see myself as the same someone who had full body seizures every day.
Then in the last few years I have had to deal with my epilepsy in a more realistic and head on ways. I started seeing a neurologist and not just letting my PCP deal whether or not to take meds. And I am on my second neurologist trying to find someone who can help with not only meds but helping me understand my condition a little better.
Mediband offers a line of bracelets that are not the heavy metal bracelets of yester year but made of the same material lightweight material you may see support and cause bracelets.
I like that The MEDIBAND isn't too obvious but if I was in a medical emergency an EMT would see that I was an epileptic. I love the color, mine is purple and I love the resources that came with the bracelet. This made me #hippiehappy. I was telling a fellow epileptic, S.P. about these when I was wearing it and he was the winner of my contest for being the first to ask me about my bracelet and win one for yourself.
I received this product in return for my honest #hippiehappy or #nothippiehappy review.
