Hellooo and welcome to our final one of our episodes on Epilepsy, funded by the lovely folks at the Wellcome Trust and Pulse awards.
Hattie Hodgson-Crome - Media Officer at Epilepsy Action joins us to give further resources on where to find help and information....and we talk about what Epilepsy Action does! Do Call their helpline on 0808-800-5050 to speak to a person who can help too - yes = a real live amazing person...!
In the audiofiction Rachel and Charlie chat about what Charlie remembers of the seizure so Rachel can fathom what happened as she doesn’t remember Anything. and are joined by Gabby and Freya showing their concern...they both comment on Charlie and Rachel’s matching black eyes and Rachel shares how she feels in the aftermath.
Lucy and me kept talking beyond where I’d thanked her for her awesome in the interview session and we covered her own mental health and thoughts about how epilepsy has changed her.
