How has epilepsy impacted your relationship with your family?

How well does your family understand your epilepsy?

Do your family members fully understand how epilepsy impacts you? Are they familiar with the side effects of your medications and how these might influence your behavior?

Are they supportive? How do they show their support?

Or do they poke fun at you for certain aspects of your condition? Do they not fully understand some behaviors or aspects of the condition or your medication's side effects? How does this feel?

We want to hear from you: Share how epilepsy has impacted your relationship with your family.
