Caregivers and Epilepsy…it Takes All Kinds!

Being a caregiver, whether you are talking about Epilepsy or anything else, is one of the toughest jobs on the planet. Really.

So, when I was asked to write an article for the December 2010 issue of Epilepsy USA Magazine, I was thrilled. The focus was a bit different…caregivers who live with Epilepsy. I frankly felt it was high time we put a bit of focus on this segment of the Epilepsy population.

When I began to reach out to people who fell into this category, I was floored to find so many who, in their household, hold the same role I do; they manage a household, a family, some hold full-time jobs, they remain as active as they can be…and they live with Epilepsy.

So, this morning…as I wake Hayden for school, try to squeeze in some folding of laundry, make sure the house is tidy as I leave for the day, let the dogs out and feed them, AND take care of myself…I am thinking of all of you who are sort of like brothers and sisters to me when it comes to this struggle!

Thanks again to all those who helped me in researching this story!
