But, hey, it’s me.
I’ve sent a few gentle reminders (I promise I was nice) about the interviews to people, completely understanding if they no longer had time (really). Heather wrote back apologizing (there’s no need for apologies) and explained her son, Jacob, had been having breakthrough seizures. Heather told me, “Ironically, epilepsy caused me to forget that it was Epilepsy Awareness Month!”
That’s what it’s like with epilepsy. Every day, every month, every year is about Epilepsy Awareness for those of us affected by epilepsy.
I’m very grateful Heather contacted me and so grateful she wants to tell the story about her Jacob. This family has endured more than their fair share of life’s challenges yet their love and laughter come through loud and clear in their story.
Robert’s Sister: When was your loved one first diagnosed? Tell us about the process of getting the diagnosis.
