I just finished reading another epilepsy memoir.
I am amazed my PTSD did not stop me from finishing it.
It was well done and had many funny parts, but it was not useful to me.
This is my fifth memoir of this type. Only one has helped me.
The others have left me depressed and fearful for Rose’s future.
I will not be loaning these books to her.
I do not want our book to do this to our all-ready-traumatized target audience.
Our book is far from a pleasure read.
There is no way to sugar-coat seizures and stay true.
This where you come in.
WE NEED ADVICE.
I want Rose’s book to be helpful, not harmful.
I plan on asking her to add a section to stories below the
“Seizure Mama speaks to parents” called “Rose speaks to patients”
Do you think that hearing Rose’s voice after some later stories will take some of the sting out?
We want this book to help people. First Do No Harm!
