I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’ Toni Morrison

I constantly wonder about epileptic people. Like, how severe of a flashing does it have to be to trigger a seizure? Can the colon thing on a digital clock set it off? Because on some clocks those flash. Or like when there’s a power outage and the digital clock is reset - can that trigger a seizure?
What do you do when you’re driving or in a car and an ambulance or police car or firetruck pass by with their sirens and lights? Cover your eyes? Do you have to cover your eyes or quickly pull over to cover your eyes? What about the flashing lights that go off during a fire drill at school?? Or the roadwork signs that flash. Or what if there’s a lightning storm???
I don’t even have it and I don’t even know anybody who does, but I’m like panicking for them oh my gosh

I am genuinely concerned

luckily not all epileptics are triggered by flashing lights, but i can definitely inform you on this.

the type of epilepsy that is triggered by flashing lights is called photosensitive epilepsy (PSE)

a clock would not be enough to trigger it. usually the lights have to be flashing much quicker. a police car is enough to trigger a migraine for me, and i usually just avert my eyes. another thing that is triggering for me while driving is the sun flashing between the trees. it acts like a strobe light. as for fire alarms, the noise and the lights are triggering. although the lights are slow moving, they are bright and the noise is piercing, so it stresses my brain and can cause a seizure. road signs, usually not for me, because of how small they are and because of how slow they move. same for lightning storms. they move slowly. however, if it is an obnoxious storm, i cant look at it.

it differs from person to person, as all brains are different and have different triggers, but this is my experience.
