Hi, My name is Jasmine and I am a 26-year-old student from Manchester.
I was diagnosed with Epilepsy when I was 17, I am currently studying for my Masters and for my dissertation I am creating a documentary - as the condition is obviously close to my heart, I decided to do it on Epilepsy.
The focus of the documentary is showing how it affects those around the individual with epilepsy (i.e. the parents, partners etc.), I have already interviewed my own family members to hear their perspective and will be including this in the documentary.
I was curious to hear more about people on this forum who are here because they have someone close to them with epilepsy and see what they go through or their main worries. Even hearing from those WITH epilepsy of any stand out experiences they've had with their family regarding the condition would be great.
Apologies for the long essay I just wanted to outline what my intentions are, I really want to make use of this uni project and create something useful that can actually help people and voice opinions.
If anyone can leave any relevant comments/input/advice below?
Thank you so much, this process of research has also been a learning curve for me and taught me a lot xx
