I am pleased to introduce you to Living Well With Epilepsy’s new contributing writer, Emily-Sian Donoghue. You may remember her from a few of her personal stories.
People with epilepsy have been dealing with stigma for centuries. This negativity has caused loss of jobs and relationships, hampered treatment, limited research funding, and has even brought about severe physical harm in some cases. In an effort to drive change, we will dedicate June to Epilepsy Stigma Awareness Month as we did last year.
