Epilepsy: One Student’s Journey to More Seizure-free Moments

(BPT) - November is recognized as National Epilepsy Awareness Month in the US. Epilepsy is a brain disorder involving recurrent, unprovoked seizures. The CDC reports that about 3.4 million Americans live with epilepsy today [1].

For anyone living with epilepsy, coping with the challenges of the disease involves more than just physical health. Many living with the neurological condition may experience emotional challenges, like worrying about when their next seizure will occur or feeling overwhelmed when it comes to choosing the right treatment options.
