We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

In 18 years of having epilepsy it’s never stopped me from living.

My medication gives me side effects – tiredness mainly, but with support of family and friends I’ve always tried staying positive.

I’ve been through a denial and angry phase of having epilepsy, but now I realise that life hasn’t dealt me such a bad hand at all.

Nearly a year ago I gave birth to a healthy happy boy who gives me added side effects - again, mainly tiredness!

My hope for the future is that people won’t look at epilepsy at a “disease” but an accepted part of society.
