Brainstorms - Epilepsy in Our Words: Personal Accounts of Living with Seizuresby Steven C. Schachter
Pub. Date: 01/01/1993
Publisher: Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
Dr. Schachter first provides an overview of epilepsy
This fascinating book presents accounts of seizures and epilepsy written by adult patients in their own words. These personal, heartfelt passages realistically detail the feelings experienced before, during, and after a wide variety of seizures, and offer valuable insights to lay persons and professionals alike.
Dr. Schachter first provides an overview of epilepsy and different seizure types from a medical perspective, and then presents a diverse collection of seizure descriptions written by patients. The book concludes with statements by some of these patients about what life with epilepsy is like, including the fear of having a seizure, the social and occupational problems encountered, and the psychological impact of the stigma still prevalent in our culture.
