Epilepsy Blog Relay: It’s Time for #LivingWellChat

This post is part of the Epilepsy Blog Relay™ which will run from June 1 to June 30, 2017. Follow along!

It’s time for another #LivingWellChat

As you may know, we close every Epilepsy Blog Relay™ with a live #LivingWellChat. This month I hope you will join us on tonight, June 30 at 7pm ET as we discuss healthcare with some of our fantastic bloggers.

The chat lasts about 1 hour. Just use the hashtag #LivingWellChat to filter out all the other social noise on twitter. Remember anyone can join the conversation!


How does a twitter chat work?

You’ll find #LivingWellChat is very simple: We start with a general topic, and the conversation flows from there. We encourage spontaneous discussion with tons of Q&A.


This Month’s Topic: Healthcare and Epilepsy

Throughout the chat we will touch on the following:

Q1: What did it feel like when you (or your loved one) were first diagnosed?

Q2: How do you pay for your medical needs (prescriptions, doctors appointments, tests, surgeries)?

Q3: Are you (or your loved one) able to work?

Q4: Do you rely on Medicare or Medicaid?

Q5: What are your thoughts on classifying epilepsy as a preexisting condition?

Q6: What do you want legislators to know about living with epilepsy?


Participating in the June #LivingWellChat

1. Go to http://twubs.com/livingwellchat OR http://tweetchat.com/room/livingwellchat
2. Be sure to log in using your twitter account **IMPORTANT**
3. Set the chat speed as fast or slow as you prefer
4. The Twitter feed will pop up with all the #LivingWellChat tweets.
5. Be sure to introduce yourself when you come on the chat
6. Join the conversation

I really like Twubs, but some people prefer Tweetchat. Others prefer to participate within Twitter. It’s up to you!


Want to listen but don’t want to chat

You can follow along even if you don’t have a twitter account. You won’t be able to chime in with your own comments but here are two ways to follow along:

Option 1: Go to the Living Well With Epilepsy Facebook page and click on the Twitter tab.

Option 2: Go to https://livingwellwithepilepsy.com and watch the chat in the footer of the home page.


Can anyone join in the conversation?

Join in the conversation! Whether you have been living with epilepsy for decades, or if you are newly diagnosed, you and your loved ones will find something of interest on the next #LivingWellChat.
