have suffered with epilepsy all of my life [my
story] and still experience seizures every day, despite medication.
To help others understand this condition, I
give talks on living with epilepsy to schools, companies and social organisations
within 100km of my home in Welwyn Garden City, Herts, UK.
I have written articles on epilepsy from the patient's point of view, and have been featured
in national and local magazines. Several radio
and TV stations have run interviews
Several years ago, I became an
accredited tutor for courses under the NHS Expert
Patients scheme and taught many local people how best to manage their chronic illnesses.
My book, Weathering the Storms - living with epilepsy,
was published in 2004. Click on Books above for links to 100s of other books on epilepsy.
