Sources of support
Having epilepsy may result in changes to your lifestyle and can affect your self confidence and self esteem. Everyone will respond differently and you may feel angry, anxious or low in mood. Talk to those around you about how you are feeling. Your GP or the national society for epilepsy helplines can be very helpful. You can also contact one of our epilepsy nurses.
