Painting the Whole Picture by Joshua Holmes tells the whole story of life with epilepsy.
I was amazed and impressed by Joshua’s family’s efforts to help him overcome his cerebral palsy and epilepsy. This is a book for families. It’s a good model for how to help children by making them do things for themselves instead of enabling. Determination was modeled and encouraged.
Joshua shared his various struggles during grade school, college, careers and living independently. These events were not sugar-coated. He let us see the process of resolving problems.
I admire his tenaciousness and courage. I liked that the book included photos of his family and his art. It made me feel like I know him as a whole person.
This book is another great resource for folks with epilepsy and their families.
Joshua Holmes has written other books. You may want to look him up.

Thank you!!! I will definitely read the books you recommend.
We moved back to London for my son. Yesterday, a member of staff at the Hospital asked how I cope emotionally with the seizures and I mentioned your blog as one of my source of support.
