Here are a few resources for information about Epilepsy:

Cure Epilepsy has information about research and a list of other resources
The Epilepsy Foundation has lots of information as well

Here are some posts I wrote with some basic information about:
What Epilepsy Is
What Epilepsy Isn’t
Different Kinds of Seizures
Some Available Treatments

These are some friends who wrote guests posts for my Faces of Epilepsy Series:
Dakota – a child with Epilepsy whose mom also had a brother with Epilepsy
Jayla – a young girl with Epilepsy
Tara – a woman and mom with Epilepsy
Trevor – a young boy with Infantile Spasms, make sure you read part two as well
Stephen – a beautiful tribute written by a woman for her adult brother who died from a variety of medical complications
Miles – a young boy with Infantile Spasms and Down Syndrome
Hillary  – a young professional who experiences tonic-clonic seizures
Kelly  – a mom of five

  4. Epilepsy.com and Epilepsy Foundation have merged their web sites. The old EF forums are available but not off the new website. Hoping usable forums come together soonish.
