#MyGlitch Awareness Month

November is a month dedicated to raising Epilepsy Awareness across the globe.

#Epilepsy according to the Mayo Clinic publication 2021 is defined as "a central nervous system (neurological) disorder in which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations and sometimes loss of awareness. ANYONE can develop epilepsy. Epilepsy affects both males and females of all races, ethnic backgrounds and ages".

Each day of the month I will be placing facts/pictures on my FB page MyGlitch, my IG mparmer or Twitter RissEKUParmer and my goal is 3-4x a week on this blog site more in depth descriptions of the various types of Epilepsy there are, as well as our own family's long journey.

Many have asked about my logo #MyGlitch, what it means and where it came from. After having many discussions with a family friend of ours as well as a (fierce athletic jumps competitor of my hubby back in the day) Steve Gordon, came up with the perfect one that fit ME! I HIGHLY suggest if you ever need a logo or new branding identity for a business or some thing as simple as I wanted, he is a GENIUS! He truly listened to our journey, how I felt daily, how the family felt daily, and I described the various types of Epilepsy. Explaining to him the many types of Epilepsy, are specialized to each individual, hence making it very difficult for doctors and families on finding the special magic to control their #Glitch

The logo description in Steve's own words "The brand identity for “Gl⚡️tch” was meant to give personal ownership to the scenario of living with epilepsy. The jumble of letters is like having the pieces to a puzzle; even if it’s always a work in progress, it’s YOUR puzzle. That jolt at the center of it all may shock you and shake up the letters, but you don’t lose any. You’re still you, you’re still whole, and the jolt is a part of you—it’s inside, not outside. And in the end, it doesn’t have to be a straight line to be seen and understood quite clearly. Your “glitch” was not done TO you, it’s part OF you!"


So stay tuned for November turning PURPLE! We will be adding MORE #Glitch gear in honor of #EpilepsyAwarenessMonth in the shop.

Thank you. Steve really made our story come to a reality, while showing all those that live with Epilepsy, have their own ⚡️ lightning bolt that jumbles it all up. Much 💜
