I am a psychiatrist who used to treat nearly 70 patients in an epilepsy clinic. I was also part of Purple Day celebrated on 26th March in CIP, Ranchi, Jharkhand, India. I used to encounter people with epilepsy regularly. A lot of stigma is associated with Epilepsy. Quality of life is also compromised for many patients due to incorrect diagnosis and side effects of antiepeleptics. That’s why I want to be a part of this global initiative.
