Seizing Control

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

Despite a lifelong challenge managing epilepsy, Laura has led a good life with friends, rewarding work, and a new life-partner. After having a grand mal seizure at work, Laura was devastated by the subsequent job insecurity—her superiors were sidelining her. When Laura’s first child was born three years later, she worried that loss of awareness during seizures jeopardized his safety. She opted for brain surgery, despite its possible life-threatening complications. Seizing Control recounts her quest for justice over workplace discrimination and the patient self-advocacy required to get the best medical care possible.
