Christmas is a time for family and friends to come together, celebrate and enjoy all that this seasonal cheer brings. However for some, both the excitement and stress of all that the festive season brings can have far worse consequences than feeling worse for wear the day after a few too many the night before.
Whether someone has their first ever episode or more frequent recurrences of seizures, Christmas for people with epilepsy isn?t always quite so care free.
Therefore we?d like to introduce you to our Christmas How-To Guide?produced in conjunction with some of our Epilepsy partners and aimed at those with epilepsy, those who know people who have epilepsy and for anyone else keen to understand more about the condition and what they could do to help someone one day.
Coping with the Excitement and Stress of Christmas
A range of trigger factors may happen throughout December, so this week the team here at Alert-it with information provided by Epilepsy Research UK would like to highlight potential risks at Christmas and what you can do to help avoid further possibility of seizures.
Christmas can be a hectic time for everyone, particularly trying to find the time to visit family members, gift shopping along with thousands of other people, let alone preparing Christmas lunch.
