You never know when you'll need to know.

It's the last day of Epilepsy Awareness Month. I wish I could have done more to educate people, but we did an interview on CBC that I know a lot of people heard (Heck, it was even on CBC's The North This Week podcast), I managed to do a few posts, and I did a few facebook status updates on the subject. Next year I'd like to do something bigger to raise awareness of how prevalent epilepsy is, how little we know about it, how much it affects us all, and the need for research to find ways to stop it.

For now, though, I'd like to leave you with this. It's a First Aid instructional video in case you ever come across someone who's having a tonic-clonic seizure. I hope you never need to use what they teach, but you never know when you'll need to know...
