Gabriela: A Blog About Epilepsy


In April this year I wrote about my friend Bobbie and the horrifying tale of how badly her daughter, who suffers from a rare form of epilepsy, was treated by both the medical community and their medical insurance company.

As I discussed at the time, Bobbie had started writing a book and, to quote myself:

When Bobbie finishes her book, you’ll be able to read about something no parent ever wants to experience and, if you or a loved one is going through anything similar, Bobbie’s experiences and research into epilepsy treatments and dealing with the medical world and insurance companies will be invaluable.

If that peaked your interest you may be interested to learn that Bobbie completed the first draft a month or so ago and she’s now publishing the book in the form of a blog.

If you or a loved one are struggling with epilepsy and the complexities that often go hand in hand with a condition that can be hard to diagnose, very hard to control, and often impossible to medicate, Bobbie’s experiences might help you or, at the very least, let you know you’re not alone.

The blog is Gabriela … let Bobbie, and me, know what you think.
