Rather, they primarily rely on health professionals. However, even the most competent health professionals cannot meet all the needs of persons with epilepsy.
Epilepsy still remains "in the closet" and is kept secret by many. This is where support groups can contribute in significant ways. Together, many individuals with epilepsy can get together to share and learn many ways to live healthier, more productive and happier lives.

If you wish to participate, we welcome you.
Hannemann took issue with Democratic Chairman Richard Port's statement that legislation which he and Councilmember John Henry Felix had introduced, rescinding the city's cabin camping policy, was "the worst piece of legislation" he had ever seen.
