The Dirty Word

>> Sunday, April 14, 2013

I have been reading posts and blogs and research papers and...and...and....

I realize almost all of us affected by epilepsy keep using the same statement:

Epilepsy has no cure.

But why? Why do we keep telling ourselves it will NEVER be cured. Why can't it?

We have all heard:

Help find a cure for....

Cancer
Multiple Sclerosis
Crohn's Disease
AIDS
Parkinson's
Ewing's Sarcoma
Leukemia

But we rarely hear, or even acknowledge there could be, a cure for epilepsy (of which some of the above diagnosis have as a symptom)? Are we that hopeless?

Bug is on the road to a cure...medicine needs to catch up with him. We KNOW what is causing his epilepsy and we KNOW that others have been treated and been almost cured. ALMOST. So close and yet so far... especially if we keep saying there is no cure. There could be...and we just aren't seeing it.
