As per a new study being commissioned by Scottish charity Quarriers, it has been revealed that epilepsy patients are scared of stepping out of their houses. They fear that if they will step out of their place then people laugh at them and will make fun of them.
The study further revealed that epilepsy patients have no trust on the outside world and believe that people will not help them, if they get into any kind of trouble. Many examples were also being shared by the patients, who revealed that they have been robbed by people at the time they suffer from seizures.
Not only had this, at the time they suffered from seizures, people used to click their photos and make videos, as a thing of amazement. The survey unveiled that 70% of the epilepsy patients have confessed that they fear to step out of their houses.
Epilepsy cannot be categorized into a single disease, and has 50 different forms. As per official records, epilepsy has affected more than 600,000 people in the UK and 54,000 in Scotland. Significant rise in the disease has made it the most common neurological conditions in the country.
"At Quarriers we believe people living with epilepsy should be able to go about their daily lives without fear of having a seizure in public”, said Gerard Gahagan, who is the head of clinical services at Quarriers.
