My old Monday posts ‘Beautiful Words’ showed the beauty of language, but as with everything there is another side.  Words have power and if not used in the right way they can be hurtful and cruel.  An awareness of how one uses words and the tone in which they are expressed is critical to convey the correct message.

Those with epilepsy often find themselves isolated, upset and angry due to, at times, flippant remarks or unkind and thoughtless comments.  It can be one of the hardest aspects of epilepsy to live with.  We have control over our attitudes but we don’t have control over others and their actions.  That being said, we do have control over our responses to those actions.
