The singer has previously revealed that she was teased and tormented by classmates because of her learning disabilities while growing up in her native Scotland.

The 50-year-old singer has now said that her problems were heightened when doctors told her she was suffering with the neurological disorder, which is characterized by seizures.

"I was protected in cotton wool. They (parents) thought they were doing the right thing. They called me touchy. At school I used to faint a lot. It's something I've never talked about. I had epilepsy," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Daily Mail's Weekend magazine.

"People in the public eye don't have things like that. All through my childhood they'd say epilepsy is to do with mental function. And now I realise it's not. I was up against all those barriers. It wasn't easy," she added.

What is she crying about now? They were temper fits that mimic epilepsy. It happens a lot in kids and teens when they want a lot of attention. If she's not wearing a bracelet, its not epilepsy.

It's great to see a celebrity share their experiences with any medical condition, but sadly, epilepsy is still very Hush hush, and people are reluctant to admit to having it, well done Susan for speaking out!! lol Elaine Howell, Kettering. XX
