We fight to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

Life at 50 was devastated.

Many friends didn't want to know, others were fantastic. My husband fell apart, the children were brilliant. 

I cried. Life hit rock bottom. I decided to fight back. 

I was no different really. I put on weight. So what? 

My reactions were sluggish; I couldn't drive, so I walked. 

When I applied for jobs, managers were terrified. 

I saw a brilliant psychiatrist, she pulled me through. 

I got a job where many of my clients were epileptics. I really understood their problems.

My philosophy now - you can do anything, tell people, but don’t push it.

It's their problem if they can't cope, not mine. I can.
