Epilepsy Support Groups

One thing I’ve discovered is the search for support groups is endless — and seldom successful. Unless you live in a metropolitan area.

But, if you do find a support group, you’ll find an amazing wealth of camaraderie, compassion and caring.

Not every group does the same things. Even groups with similar activities may have different results because of the individuals involved…but think of it as a learning and bonding experience.

You’re interacting with people who share a similar illness, but perhaps different solutions. You can share your feelings, fears, concerns and perhaps get answers.

But most importantly, you can join a community of caring and know that you’re not alone.
