Page Turners: Exploring Epilepsy Through Books

Books have always been a part of my life. Whether exploring another world or improving my health and wellbeing.

As a result of my epilepsy diagnosis, I became motivated to learn more about both my own illness and that of others so I could support them.

Here, I’m diving into a topic close to my heart: Books written by people who understand the ups and downs of living with epilepsy.

Join me as I share my top picks, offering insights and personal reflections along the way. In our shared experiences, storytelling has the power to educate, inspire, and bind us together.
