Thanks to the lovely guys at Irish Medical News who’ve done a feature on having epilepsy.

Have a gander HERE

Thank God they don’t reprint the photo of me in the magazine on the website…….

  1. Do you “dj” in clubs as well? What about “strobe” lighting etc, wouldn’t that be a trigger factor? Also are you worried you might swallow your tongue? I’d hate to see and have to help someone having an epileptic seizure. I used to work with a woman who had epilepsy and she always had a wooden spoon with her, in case she had a seizure and swallowed her tongue, Thank God she didn’t when I was about.This has started me I’ll be Googling “epilepsy” now to see what the lates is about it.

  2. Hey Cyber – honest questions I like 🙂 I do (very rarely these days it has to be said ) dj in clubs but it’s only about 4 percent of us who are photosensitive and as such affected by strobes.

    The whole tongue swallowing thing is an old wives tale mostly – you’re more likely to do damage to someone by trying to jab a wooden spoon into their mouth 🙂

    Thanks for the honest questions – epilepsy.ie is a good resource and Wikipedia isn’t bad either – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epilepsy

    Cheers for the post…
