It’s a metaphor see. You spend all day in bed but you don’t actually give it the power to put you to sleep.
Anti epilepsy pillows are pillows that you can breathe through in case of a seizure.
They save lives and are provided free by UK charity "Epilepsy Sucks UK"
Quote from the Charity website:
"THIS IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
'Death from suffocation can result within minutes when a child or adult suffering a seizure becomes entrapped in an ordinary pillow which blocks their nose and mouth. If saved from death, oxygen starvation and brain injury may occur resulting in lifelong disability and dependency'.
Solution: Anti-suffocation pillow!
'Among 15 cases of Sudden Unexpected Deaths in Epilepsy that were witnessed in the community, difficulty breathing was observed in 80% of these cases, where 70% of patients were found in a prone position, suggesting that suffocation contributed to their deaths'.
Solution: Anti-Suffocation pillow!
'Frequent arousals caused by epileptic activity are one possible basis for insomnia. Depression or anxiety, which are common in epilepsy patients, also may contribute'.
(Lack of sleep is a well documented seizure triggering factor)
Solution: Reduce anxiety, fear and possible seizures with an anti-suffocation pillow!
'The main health risks come from the worry, lack of sleep and depression that caring can bring. Carers often have to fight and battle for the support they get and this wears you down. All this can lead to high blood pressure and stress-related illness'
Solution: Parents and carers have reported to us that they have slept better since receiving an anti-suffocation pillow!”
The charity are very near to winning a £5000 donation. It is an online vote with a login from fb, google + or twitter.
There are a small grass roots charity of volunteers and this would make a big difference to them
