 Seize The Seizures

I had the privilege of editing this moving-beyond-measure memoir by my Mom.  It is the story of the author’s life, upended by a viral brain infection and its subsequent epilepsy disorder. It is an intensely personal account of the dreams, therapies, feelings, and events of an adult individual living with seizures. Rather than being dry and scientific in nature, it offers poignant insight into an illness not commonly-known and often misrepresented and stigmatized. A book about the incredibly unsettling and calamitous transition of a life thrown from the pink of health to nearly touching death, it is marked by levity even in the darkest moments, displaying an incandescent passion and strength of spirit. It is a story about how we can cope with life accepting the new us with some sense of accomplishment, love, and compassion.
