    From Someone who Read the Book

    I just wanted to write to you and let you know how much you have inspired me. My daughter bought me your book, 'Epilepsy Your Not alone.' You wouldn't believe all the highlighting I've done in it. It only took me 2 days to read. In my town in OKLA. Or anywhere close. It is hard to find any support groups. So I decided to start my own with the help of the Epilepsy Assoc. of OKLAH. I worked as a LPN for 15 years. I was very involved in my children's activities. Never missed their functions. I was diagnosed in Jan of 2004n and have found this very difficult after being so independent, I have tried about 6 different meds just minimal help, and side effects are terrible. Two of my EEG was normal I have had 5 convulsions and once even thought about taking my life. I thought it would make things easier on my family, (expenses, taking care of me etc...) I have been in and out of the hospital People always asked what caused them. And I can't give them an answer. At this point I would just like them to get them under control. I would like to feel needed instead of me needed every one else¿s help so that's were starting a support group came in. I wanted to get information to others just as much as receiving it. At some point in time I would like to be a speaker so the people in our community will understand more. It is really needed here. One time I had an aura by the mailbox. The cars kept driving by. Finally a car stopped because he thought I might have been run over. (Bless him) At 45 years of age and have worked since 14 I am going stir crazy. My family has been very helpful. But don't really understand. Thank you for writing the book.

    Your book has helped me

    Your book has helped me so very much when I was at an extremely low ebb with this new world I'm facing. Thank you so much for letting me know where I can read more. I read your book, I wanted to focus on everything but seizures, get my mind off all this craziness, and I spent 3 hours doing a soul searching with all your guidelines and goals, issues, and concerns in your book. I have a plan in place, and I'm doing a weekly assessment of how the plan is being accomplished. Your book was such a lifesaver, I think God had a hand in pointing me to your book. Sorry I've gotten so wordy, here, but your book basically saved me.

    HI Stacey!

    My name is Donna, and I just want you to know that I bought your book a few years ago and it was very encouraging to me, really did get a lot out of it. I'd recommend it to anyone else who has E, and their family members who'd want to understand what it's like to live with this condition. It surely does help to know we're not alone in this.

    GREAT BOOK!

    I just finished your book Epilepsy; You're not Alone and thought I'd tell you how much I appreciated it. The positive attitude was very refreshing and a welcome change from the 'Why me?' stories that I read so often.

    Epilepsy You're Not Alone: A Personal View On How To Cope With The Disorder

    Excellent examples. I never new how many different types of epilepsy there was and how people struggle emotionally because of their disorder. It is only since I read this book that it become obvious how living each day with epilepsy can be a real struggle for the people with the disorder and their love ones too. Chillemi, gives very informative information and hope for the future. Reading 'Epilepsy Your're Not Alone' will give you hope for the future and show you how you can cope with the disorder.

    Epilepsy You're Not Alone: A Personal View On How To Cope With The Disorder

    The beginning of your book was very good, but I am getting so much more out of the self help section as it reinforced for me as I read it the positive things that are a MUST to deal with living with epilepsy. Perhaps that is because, for me right now, I need that structure in my life and to be reminded over and over to do the things that you suggest. It is easy when dealing with epilepsy and problems in life not to take better care of yourself as we focus on our problem and not the remedies or things we can do to help ourselves live a better life. Therefore, I keep my bookmark placed at the beginning of that section so I can now glance back as needed to refresh my thinking on the right track. You should be most proud of your book.

    Epilepsy You're Not Alone: A Personal View On How To Cope With The Disorder

    'Life deals us many hard blows that we often don't expect. I admire the fact that someone like Stacey Chillemi was thrown a curve ball that may have knocked many of us down to the point where many of us may not have wanted to get back up, but she did. It wasn't easy but she possesses a determined spirit that won't let her give up. For that reason Stacey will go far and achieve whatever dreams she sets her mind to accomplish.'Della Crews

    Epilepsy You're Not Alone: A Personal View On How To Cope With The Disorder

    I have had epilepsy for the past 10 years, and I have been searching for a book that makes me understand why I feel the things that I do. This is the first book that really opens my eyes to the fact that people are similiar to me, my feelings of being scared are not alone there are a lot of people that are like me. This is the most enlighting book I have ever read, I have a greater understand of what my feelings mean and actually Im lucky it could always be worse. I strongly suggest this book. This book is a must read.

    Finally an epilepsy book from a personal perspective

    This book is an excellent self-help book from the perspective of someone who has epilepsy. All too often in books about epilepsy the point of view is that of a physician who personally does not deal with epilepsy on a day-to-day basis. It's nice to read what fellow epileptics have done in order to better cope with epilepsy. The personal accounts are inspirational.
