Some friends wrote stories for my latest book Underwater. They tell of their struggles, their questions, their fears, and how they’ve been treated by society. They invite us to travel with them in the adventure of life with epilepsy.
Here are a few quotes, but please take time to read their stories in Underwater:
Justin wrote, “Living with epilepsy has become my new normal.”
Susan wrote, “Being the chop buster that I am, I also sent my friends and family an e-mail that had phrases no longer politically correct to say to me, like: Do you have half of a brain? Did you lose your mind?”
In future blogs I’ll include more comments from friends. Today, please think about their stories. Ask yourself, “What can I do to help the 1 in 26 people who will experience epilepsy at some point in their lives?”
Make a difference by loving people who have epilepsy – and those who feel underwater because of some other life experience.
Today, let’s care. Deeply. And let others know we care.
