I went to concerts once in a while and to amusement parks all the time and rode everything. Nothing bothered me.
I have been lucky and nothing has happened, but there is always a fear factor for those friends of mine that dont have E or completely understand it.
@Seruzies I feel the same way about Motley Crue
I still attend concerts and go to the annual San Diego county fair. Luckily I am not photo-sensetive. If I was, the last concert would've done me in. The opening band was "The Prodigy", you know "Smack my B*@## up and other rediculous songs, then Linkin Park came out. The flashing light show for the first band were horrible for P.S. people. I notice that flashing lights give me an instant headache, but that's about it. The new L.E.D. flashing lights for emergency vehicles really gives me headaches. I still ride the rides that I like, but always stay away from the spinning rides. I get motion sick really easy and ever since I was a kid, spinning rides can make me vomit if I'm on them too long. I just won't ride them. Home videos are another motion sickness thing. If I'm watching somebodies home video with them walking around or even those newer "reality movies like, Blair witch, Cloverfield and all that, I am done.
I worked stage for over 8 years. Major fest for 6 years. Until about 5 years ago I never had problems with the cans/varilights/strobes. No idea what changed.
First time I had a problem with strobes was at Disney on a ride aimed at kids. The photo shooting at the end threw me for a loop. First time EVER I had that problem. Not good for one who takes a ton of photos!!
Yes! Going to see Rise Against, Bad Religion and Four Year Strong next Saturday in Orlando =) It feels like my only escape sometimes. I have a feeling that even if my doctor told me I couldn't go to concerts anymore, I'd still go. There's nothing better than that rush of adreneline when I'm moshing around =D I still ride amusement park rides too, even ones with stobe lights since they don't seem to be the actual cause of my epilepsy and I've never had a seizure due to strobe lights. But I do make sure to take extra care when around them by closing my eyes, but I have a feeling I'd do that anyways since they just irritate me in general.
