Epilepsy on vacation

It’s always interesting to go on vacation: the list-making, packing and unpacking, rushing to the airport, meeting relatives and friends and so on. Personally, I love the first two parts.

It’s even more interesting when you have epilepsy. You have to start your list with counting how many pills you need throughout the vacation, for the trip…and then add 10% to be safe.

Of course, if the trip takes too long, you must have meds with you because airport and train trips might take a while. Planes can be delayed, trains can stop in the middle of the field for hours.

Taking a vacation is a good thing, but, for a person with epilepsy, the pre- and post-vacation period is a hectic time.



One thought on “Epilepsy on vacation

  1. Hope you have a great vacation! I know as fun as vacation can be it also comes with the challenge of not forgetting epilepsy is a part of your life. Getting enough sleep, not too much to drink, taking pills near or close to scheduled time, staying hydrated, not getting sick from new foods you might try because your meds won’t absorb. The list is endless. Making those memories is always worth it.
