Seizure Investigation Unit

My name is Jessica.  I have had Epilepsy for the majority of my life.  I have always been offered the chance to go to the Seizure Investigation Unit but as you can imagine, I was too afraid.  I mean I haven’t been off medication for 30 plus years. Recently, I have decided to go to the Seizure Investigation Unit in Calgary (Only because the Vancouver waitlist was so long and they are short-staffed in specialists at the moment).  When I was trying to find information about someone’s experience in the unit, I found it almost impossible. 

Last week my husband and I received a letter stated within 6 months, I will be admitted.  I want to document this experience.  If you have ANY questions at all that I could possibly find the answer to while I am in the hospital or just everyday question regarding the Seizure Investigation Unit, please email Lindsay Beal and I will try to answer these questions the best that I can. 

Knowledge is power.  Let’s find it together.
