Interview excerpt: Maeve explains that she is open about her epilepsy with colleagues and students in case she has a seizure.

Image representing Maeve© Disability NarrativesYeah, I tell people about it. Because I think - you know - if I was to have a seizure in front of them, it's better that they know in advance what might happen. And when I was teaching at [University Name], it was just for one term, but I told all the students in the first tutorial that I have epilepsy and if I had a seizure, what to do. And I had a poster on the door, about seizure management control. So yeah, I don't mind telling people about it. I don't have any sort of worries about that.
