Getting on with Epilepsy
This is a story about what can happen when a person has epilepsy. People do not need to be able to read in order to understand the story. In the book we follow one man’s daily life - on the bus, at work, and out with his friends. We see him having a seizure, going to the doctor, having a brain scan, an EEG, a blood test, and taking daily medication.
There are also examples of activities which people with epilepsy need to be careful about, such as drinking alcahol and swimming alone. The book shows that it is possible to enjoy an active and independent life with epilepsy. Everyone who has epilepsy is a little bit different. At the back of the book, relevant pictures can be chosen to show which activities are safe for a particular person with epilepsy.
