Living with epilepsy

If you or your child have been recently diagnosed, it’s important to know that most people cope very well after the initial period of adjustment. However others may need a little more guidance and support.

You may have felt a range of emotions since the diagnosis, including depression, anger or frustration, as well as feeling worried about the future. If you feel you are struggling with it, discuss how you feel with your doctor.

Living with epilepsy does not mean you or your child cannot live a rewarding and full life.

Learning about epilepsy and sharing that information with others, finding the right medication, developing a support network and enabling your child to continue to live their life as normally as they can, is vitally important.
