Helloooo and welcome to Episode The Eighth where we find RACHEL in hospital and awake, talking to Charlie about what happened. Do you think Rachel should have told her pals about the condition? Do you think Charlie's reaction was fair or selfish?
All these questions! We fathom from Rachel what she remembers of her first seizures in school and otherwise, and how she feels about it all, and also get Charlie's perspective - coming from a place of genuine love and concern for her pal.
Matthew Walker talks eruditely and more about the finer aspects of elements of the condition, and how folks can help themselves, as well as recognise signs and symptoms fo the condition. And we truly appreciate you listening - and hope that this has been a useful episode and has some resonance for you!
All links we could find of a useful nature are on the shownotes which are here on the Quirky Voices website.
