Disability Groups Call Supreme Court Ruling On Affordable Care Act A Victory

We are proud to join other patient advocacy and consumer organizations celebrating the U.S. Supreme Court preserving the Affordable Care Act, which in its initial years of implementation, helped reduce the level of uninsured people living with the epilepsies by almost 60%. Read more here!

A U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act is a big win for people with disabilities, advocates say.

The 'Mozart effect' shown to reduce epileptic brain activity, new research reveals

Listening to the famous 18th century composer's Sonata for Two Pianos K448 led to a 32% reduction in epileptiform discharges (EDs). These are electrical brain waves associated with epilepsy and can cause seizures or bursts of electrical activity that temporarily affect how the brain works.

https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2021-06/sh-te061521.php

Music by Mozart has been shown to have an anti-epileptic effect on the brain and may be a possible treatment to prevent epileptic seizures, according to new research presented today at the 7th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN)1.

Is there a call line to talk to someone else when you are experiencing pre-seizure anxiety
Hello everyone, My colleague Kim Hager and I are interested in studying the experiences and barriers to accessing mental health services for families. For the purpose of our research, we intend to compare three groups – caregivers of children with one or more mental health conditions, caregivers of children with mental health conditions and common medical conditions, and caregivers of children with mental health conditions and rare diseases. Caregivers include biological parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, step-parents, guardians and kinship homes with children under the age of 18. The survey is nationwide and open to families who live anywhere within the United States. The hope is the survey results will assist mental health providers in tailoring services to meet families’ needs. The study was approved by the IRB and survey is anonymous. Please help us by filling out the survey and/or sharing it. English survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PQFSMVV Spanish survey:https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/2DXD5TX Thank you and we appreciate all your help.

when is the next zoom meeting
Hello Warriors: We truly appreciate you connecting with us on this path to discovering our best lives. What a journey it has been, learning to live with epilepsy, and we thank you all for the notes of encouragement and advice that has been given. We have been working on this film following Terah and her journey with epilepsy for the past two years. We’d like you to invite others to join us, as we’re almost 100,000 strong, and we’d love to have more! Let’s get as many people as we can on board to learn more about seizures and epilepsy. Please follow our page and share it with as many folks as possible who might benefit from the information being provided. https://www.facebook.com/watch/SeizeTheDayTheFilm/ There is strength in numbers, and the more people getting the word out, the louder our voices are to demand the medical support needed. Let’s all come together to move forward on this journey. For more information please visit our website and sign up for our newsletter. www.seizethedayfilm.com

Looking for the Atkins for Seizures Book. Anyone have a copy laying around? Did it work?
Happy birthday, bless you, girl
I don't know about you folks, but I am still a kid at heart. When I have a grand mal seizure, it reminds me of the Hulk. What do I mean by that? Well... I don't have any warning I'll have a seizure, stuff gets tossed about when during the seizure (I knocked out a couple shower tiles the other day), and people have to tell me what I did when I snap out of the fog after the seizure. Kind of like how Bruce Banner does after he turns into the big green guy. When my kids were little it helped explain to them what it was like, made them smile, and showed them that I was but wasn't taking it too seriously (know what I mean)? It also showed them that I would be ok after each seizure. I hope this helps you as much as I found it helped me.
>>I continue to try to share information this information because we are more at risk than the non-epilepsy population for developing one or more autoimmune diseases. Doctors often overlook them in epilepsy because health care, in general, tends to be siloed. Many doctors concentrate on their specialty and do not consider complementary and alternative medicine.
💜💜To all those fighting this ugly disease and those who have beat it you are the true heroes. To our boy Ethan you have come so far since you been diagnosed in 2016 to beating your battle with Epilepsy. Going 2yrs SEIZURE FREE! Thank you to the Epilepsy Foundation of Texas for giving Ethan the opportunity to go too camp with other children with Epilepsy. #epilepsysucks #ethanstrong #internationalepilepsyday 💜💜
