Epilepsy in Our World by Lisa Francesca Andermann

Book Description

Nearly 60 million people around the world live with epilepsy. This collection of frank narratives by people with epilepsy from 21 countries offers unique perspectives on the personal and social aspects of seizure disorders. Reflecting a diverse array of cultures, the narratives reveal many common concerns and show the distinct ways that people around the world affected by epilepsy react to the diagnosis and cope with their families, friends and communities. The book includes chapters on the Global Campaign Against Epilepsy and a physician's firsthand experience in East Africa. Appendices list contact information for each affiliate of the International League Against Epilepsy and the International Bureau for Epilepsy. ABOUT THE SERIES: With the Brainstorms series, one of the world's leading authorities on epilepsy, Dr Steven C. Schachter, has gathered together the personal testimonies of patients, family members, and caregivers to create a poignant and gripping series of books on this misunderstood and often devastating disorder.
