Hi I would love to hear peoples stories on how they have coped with Epilepsy. living with Epilepsy is a battle that can be defeated and controlled, please can everyone share there stories to me either by email to daniel.finch@livingwithepilepsy.uk or comment it on my website www.livingwithepilepsy.uk and i will be sure to post it on the website under a blog with your name and any details you wish to provide.
Epilepsy is a hidden disability and its not just down to neurologists to make people aware of it. we need to educate the population about epilepsy, we can do this by sharing stories to everyone. please take your time to help people #help #support #epilepsy
