Juliet - tonic clonic seizures
Juliet is a stand-up comedian and journalist who also happens to have epilepsy. She describes her tonic clonic seizures as ‘gin and tonic colonics’ because of how they make her feel afterwards. She is a regular columnist in our magazine Epilepsy Review. You can read a sample of her columns here. To talk to Juliet or to find another case study call Amanda or Angie above.
Graham - father of a teenage daughter with epilepsy
Graham is a paramedic and father to teenage daughter Victoria who developed epilepsy following surgery to remove a brain tumour. He deals with Victoria’s seizures with his professional hat on rather than as an emotional dad. He is often called out to people who have had seizures and says they welcome the peace and privacy of the ambulance as they can often be embarrassed to have had a seizure in public. To talk to Graham or to find another case study call Amanda or Angie above.
