I have purchased seven more epilepsy books.
I will be sharing my thoughts on each after I read it.
The first is The Sacred Disease; My Life with Epilepsy by Kristin Seaborg, M.D.
I found this to be insightful and helpful.
The memoir follows Kristin’s life from a high fever and seizure as a toddler to adulthood.
I am amazed at her tenaciousness and fortitude.
Kristin finished medical school and gave birth to three children while struggling through trials of many failed medicines and a brain surgery.
She is honest about her feelings and frustrations throughout the whole process.
This book will be helpful to any person going through decades of uncontrolled epilepsy, especially young women of child-bearing age.
I am very grateful to Kristin Seaborg for sharing her story.
