Epilepsy Blog Relay™: It’s time for another #LivingWellChat

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

Don’t miss #LivingWellChat

At the end of every Epilepsy Blog Relay™, we close with a live #LivingWellChat. Join us on Nov 30, at 7pm ET to celebrate and connect 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 and join the conversation!


This Month’s Topic: Epilepsy and Stigma

Throughout the chat we will touch on the following:

Q1: Do you believe there is a positive or negative stigma around epilepsy?

Q2: What kind of stereotypes do you think exist about people with epilepsy?

Q3: Are you willing (is it easy for you) to talk about epilepsy?

Q4: What did it feel like when you (or your loved one) were first diagnosed?

Q5: What are some pretty common worries you think people with epilepsy live with today?

Q6: How can we change the conversation to make the discussion more open?

How does the chat work?

Lots of Twitter chats have a formal structure, only allowing a few minutes per question, but #LivingWellChat is more open. You will 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.


Participating in the November #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!


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.
