Everyone is born with a seizure threshold. If yours is high, you are less likely to have a seizure. Your seizure threshold can be lowered by alcohol, sleep deprivation, stress and flickering lights.
Just more reason that people with epilepsy need to really take care of themselves and live as healthy a life as they can. And more pressure for us parents to be sure we are creating that healthy balance for our children with and without epilepsy.
