I am very excited about today's post! I created a purple mani in support of Epilepsy Awareness Month. Nail Narcotics is doing a series on her blog to spread the word about this neurological disorder and I'm thrilled to be able to spread it a little bit farther...
Colors Used: Jesse's Girl - Spring Break and Wild Thing, Essie - Lilacism, Urban Outfitters - Bandeau
Spring Break is definitely the refreshing color I needed to be rocking today. I've been looking at my nails all day, smiling like a fool lol. I've received quite a few compliments on my nails today and it's been a great way for me to spark up a discussion about epilepsy. Here are some myths/facts about the disorder that Nail Narcotics posted to her blog...
MYTH :You can swallow your tongue while having a seizure.
For those of you who took biology or have a tongue of your own you will notice that its connected to the bottom of your mouth.(if you sense sarcasm its because I'm laying it on pretty thick)
MYTH: People with Epilepsy are disabled
People with Epilepsy have the same range of intelligence and abilities as everyone else. Physically and mentally we are no different!
MYTH: Epilepsy is a disease
Epilepsy is chronic medical condition. You can not catch it
MYTH: You can’t die from epilepsy
You can! Prolonged seizures can result in death.

Until next time!
