One more reflection on the "Purple Day". "Aravot" spoke with Ani Gevorgyan, the head of the Neurology Department.
Read, be informed and try to differentiate epileptic seizure from epilepsy disorder, learn about the main types of seizures and epilepsy, their causes and risk factors, modern treatment options. Know how to take an approach, if someone nearby is having an epileptic seizure. Most importantly, remember that epilepsy is not a sentence, and it is not fair to label people with epilepsy or hide the condition to avoid being labeled.
Everyone has some kind of problem, no one is immune, and a person is not to blame if they have, for example, epilepsy.
