Brainstorms: Epilepsy In Our Words – Personal Accounts Of Living With Seizures

The lending library is temporarily closed.

Written by adult patients in their own words, detailing the feelings experienced before, during and after a wide variety of seizures and offering valuable insights to lay people and professionals alike. Dr Schachter first provides an overview of epilepsy and different seizure types from a medical perspective, and then presents a diverse collection of seizure descriptions written by patients. The book concludes with statements by some of these patients concerning what life with epilepsy is like, including the fear of having a seizure, the social and occupational problems encountered, and the psychological impact of the stigma still prevalent in our culture.
