On our Instagram we have been allowing people to share their questions with the Epilepsy Positivity community, to gain answers from people with lived experience.

Building upon this, this page aims to create a more organised space for people affected by epilepsy to discuss their experiences and ask each other questions. We asked Instagram users in the Epilepsy Positivity community the broad topics they would like to be featured and these were the top six: seizures, treatments, mental health, social life, school/education and memory. 


Note: the answers posted by users are most likely from experience and guidance should still be sought from professionals when necessary.  

If you have any other ideas for forum topics or would like to provide any feedback (always appreciated) then please email us at

Anyone got any experiences on drinking and seizures? Considering giving up drinking all together, has anyone done this?

I used to just drink as if nothing....but then I my meds interfered with the alcohol. So then, I figured whenever I wanted to drink, I’d skip my meds that day. Even worse idea. In the end, I just stopped drinking all together.
