I don't have epilepsy myself but my partner do.

I didnt realise how much it impacts on your life, from not wanting to go to certain shows because of the flashing lights to body temperature not to hot.

I feel out of my comfort zone worried that something I do or don't do could be life threatening for my partner. When to get help or just give comfort.

It is hard for loved ones as well as the warrior I feel lonely sometimes as my partner don't like talking about it.
