If you are worried you don’t have gear to get you through the month, check out the Living Well With Epilepsy Gear Shop. We’ve just added a bunch of new products with the Epilepsy Awareness design. My favorite is the coffee mug I use each morning.

Or check out this super comfy t-shirt that my daughter and I love. My favorite is the long sleeve. You can find the shirts here:
