Seriously, when you have an eeg, how many of you are immediately set off into a sz. with the strobes? I am. I have been every eeg in the past 40 years. (That is a lot of eegs). So, ok, I basically just have short absences and some partials and it "shouldn't" be a big deal to me since I try to avoid triggers... but fluorescent lights flash and it is a darn big trigger!
Ok, so now we have the govt. basically banning incandescent light bulbs (with every plant here shut down in the US) and "wanting" us to use the energy efficient ones. Doesn't that equate to the govt. forcing us to be sick? I just cannot have the fluorescent bulbs ( any kind) in the house, period. . I am waiting to see other options for the energy efficient bulbs but I am furious this has occurred.. Personally, I do not believe we are NOT a minority of people -- we just are still a "let's not talk about that disease". I have already contacted my congresswoman on it ( my senators are jerks). How about all of you doing the same?
Fluorescent > causes seizures among many ( just like strobes) with the flashes > the govt. is making me ill!
