We are speaking today with Christalle Bodiford. Christalle is an artist, advocate, writer, and an adventurer who lives with Epilepsy.
Seizures and epilepsy are not the same. An epileptic seizure is a transient occurrence of signs and/or symptoms due to abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. Epilepsy is a disease characterized by an enduring predisposition to generate epileptic seizures and by the neurobiological, cognitive, psychological, and social consequences of this condition. Translation: a seizure is an event and epilepsy is the disease involving recurrent unprovoked seizures. (https://www.epilepsy.com/learn/about-epilepsy-basics/what-epilepsy )
