In ancient times people didn't understand diseases and what caused them. So they often behaved very cruelly to victims of certain diseases. People who had epilepsy in the Middle Ages were thought of as lunatics, or as bewitched! Yet did you know that many great people and many geniuses were epileptic? Among them were the Duke of Welling- jton, Richard Wagner, Vincent ;Van Gogh, and Hector Berlioz. (Epilepsy is a disease of the nervous system. People with epilepsy have sudden spells during which they have spasms, called convulsions, after which they may become unconscious or fall into a coma. Medicine cannot yet explain exactly what happens and why the convulsions are caused. It seems that the normal patterns of activity of the brain become disrupted for a short time. The brain tissue in these people is sensitive to chemical changes, and when some sort of change takes place the brain responds by sending out discharges that cause the convulsions. A person has to be "predisposed" to have such reactions, because other people may undergo the same chemical changes and not have convulsions. There is a possibility that it may be related to heredity. • What brings on an epileptic attack may be a head injury, high fever, tumors or scars in the brain substance, disturbances in the blood supply, and so on. Injury to the brain may result in epilepsy. But epilepsy has nothing to do with mental development. A person who has epilepsy should be considered a normal individual, not as an invalid or some sort of outcast. Epileptics can lead normal lives, going to school, working, marrying, and raising families. Medical science has developed drugs to prevent attacks and to control them alter they happen. These medicines are usually given to people for many years or even for a lifetime, so that they can lead normal, happy lives.
