Dealing with epilepsy

My Ethiopian seizure

In 2014, I went to Ethiopia for the “Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security” conference (organized by IFPRI). The name is more complex than the conference itself.

I had the opportunity of giving a presentation in their “Rapid Fire Presentations” part. Of course, I was very timid, as always, and I’m not sure if people understood what I was saying.

Anyway…I’m just bragging.

In the morning of the second of the conference, I woke up on the bathroom floor with a few bruises and my lips bitten a bit. It wasn’t really visible, but it was enough for me to know what happened.

I was preparing to go and listen a few other presentations and to comment or ask questions, when, suddenly, it happened.

I’m telling you his I found that common factor of my seizures: extremely long flights (or any kind of transport). The exception was my trip to Uruguay.  

I don’t know why, but I’m happy. For both Uruguay and Ethiopia.
