People use these tags as a means of discussion, gathering information, and offering support.
We can find other people going through the same things we are, offer or ask for support, and spread information about seizures and epilepsy.
I tag my informative posts on seizures and epilepsy with “seizure,” “seizure disorder,” and “epilepsy,” and seizure episode posts with “seizure” and “seizure disorder.”
We actually use these tags. Surprising, isn’t it.
The tags we WOULD be Saviouring are things like “TW: epilepsy,” “TW: seizure,” or “seizure warning,” or “epilepsy warning.”
Thank you for being considerate of our medical issues.
This isn’t some “SOCIAL JUSTICE SALLY” thing (please stop insulting the people who are trying to help us not end up in the hospital tonight). People actually do have problems with flashing gifs, and DO use the tags as place of discussion to share experiences with others.

THIS IS A PSA ABOUT HOW TO ORGANISE THE TAGS THAT TUMBLR AUTOMATICALLY SAVES FOR YOUR BLOG
Basically, it saves the tags from the first 20-30 or so pages of your blog. No later than that. So if you want certain tags to always be saved, go find a really old post of yours and hijack it - put all your useful tags on it. This post will show up right at the end of the last page of each of those tags, but I think it’s worth the hassle of having to type out tags every day.
I tried doing this with a post on about the 60th oldest page of my blog and it didn’t work, but it did with a post on the 20th oldest.
Beware that posts can have a maximum of 30 tags, so if you have more regularly used tags than that you might need to hijack two or more posts.
Conversely, if you’ve got random tags that you only used once and they’re annoying and they clog up your tag drop-down, you can just find the posts that are tagged with them and then delete the tags or delete the posts and they won’t appear in the tag drop-down ever again. NB: this doesn’t take effect until the next day, because of the ‘use a tag once and it shows up for the rest of that day’ - editing the post with the annoying tag on it apparently counts as ‘using that tag’.
Disclaimer: I found this all out through experimentation, so it might not hold up for everyone, but I wanted to share.
