  • Epilepsy is NOT A DISEASE, it is not any kind of mental illness.

  • Epilepsy is not contagious.

  • Epilepsy does not affect a person's power of thinking or intelligence generally. In fact, history records the names of many famous individuals who reportedly had epilepsy.

  1. Sharmaji,
    I must congratulate you for highlighting the subject of Epilepsy. I have come across a good number of people who were very energetic, intelligent but epileptic. I had to also protect from falling out of running train, an epileptic young man who had a bout of attack standing on the foot board of a Churchgate bound Mumbai local.

    Care has to be taken to train patients to estimate the bouts and take care to save physical harm.
