What we’re looking for
The best way to know what interests us (and our readers) is to take a look at the Top Posts and Pages in the sidebar. Most of these articles have some personal story element to them. But these stories are not completely self-serving. In other words, the reader takes something from reading the story. We also ask for articles between 500-600 words.
What to send us
If you are interested you don’t need to send the whole story right away. Just send a few topics you might want to write about and why you are the best person to write on the subject. Send your ideas to us via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Jessica brings a unique perspective to this leading epilepsy blog as she was diagnosed with epilepsy as a teen. She also brings 20+ years experience in marketing.
I was 14 when I was diagnosed with epilepsy, now 43, single mum of 3 children, not easy, but we have just got on with our lives, routines,
I have grown up knowing I’d never drive, accepted this, adjusted to accept it as away of mine and my children’s life. Public transport is not great where we live, so again its part of our lives. My eldest son is learning to drive, this is independence for him and a huge help for me and his siblings. He has a car, he’s learning lots, and I hope he’ll pass his test
I went nearly 2 years seizure free, then a month before the seizure free date, I had one, this upset me, but back to the drawing board.
My last seizure was last Saturday, bit my tongue badly, banged my head, but thankfully my children were home, they looked after me,phoned the ambulance. I’m OK at the moment but my head hurts as its bruised and my tongue is lumpy from where I bit it
I’d love to chat with others who have grand mal seizures or any other type,
My name is Bryce.
I am a Stay At Home Dad in New Zealand. I have had Epilepsy since puberty. (20 yrs ago) . I have complex partial seizures. The longest I have been seizure free is 30 days. I have a blog. I would love to meet others who blog, or would be willing to share their story. Epilepsy isn’t the best situation , but eventually can make you a stronger person.
