I  can’t thank this group enough for ordering me one of these anti-suffocation pillows

It was only because I was having an out of hours chat on Purple Day with Michelle (I am so sorry we were wittering away till last pumpkin time !!), she found out I had been having nocturnal seizures for the last 18 months & asked why had I not been in contact sooner??? I said, I was trying to control them, life was going by, my Neurology Department had upped my meds considerably, so just taking things day by day (Just to let you know I have also suffered from generalised tonic clonic seizures for 23 years & absent seizures for 33 years)

The next day, Michelle ordered me a pillow And bless her heart, kept me updated because of the Easter weekend, said it would be with you by Tuesday & bang on the dot, it was here!! Thank you so much Michelle Shrieves & Darren Shrieves & Epilepsy Sussex (closed group). You really are there, night & day for us Lots of love, me, Chris & Rosie xxxx

Well dads first night home for 3.5 years and just as he was leaving the home he has been in he had a tc... now I’m sitting next to him and he is fast asleep with his first night in the home he left all those years ago, wearing his watch! All a bit nerve racking for us - he was smiling at us about doing his care - think it must have been like laurel and hardy! x ps thank you everyone for all your support


So today Darren and I went to the funeral of Brian Vernon, Brian has been with us for about six years and has been championed by his daughter Sharon Vernon, many of you will have seen posts and comments on this page from her.

Brian died on March 31st from a massive seizure.

Please think of the Vernon family today

Sharon you definitely did your dad proud

Oh my goodness, I just checked that it had gone through. I'm left completely flabbergasted at the huge kindness of your charity. After speaking to Michelle, I thought she meant about £50! I can't believe it & I feel so lucky. I can't thank you all enough. I can whole heartedly promise that every little bit of your money will be used for our charity and our sett up. Your charity has definitely inspired me to go further with my charity & how I can go about doing this. Please thank everyone so much.

Please can everyone say a huge 'Thank you' to everyone at 'Epilepsy Sussex' (a wonderful charity) who have extremely generously donated £500 of their own money, to help with some of the costs in setting up our charity. They once started from nothing too... but are now well established in their community. They raise lots of awareness about the condition, fundraise, have volunteers & even have a helpline! Just goes to show what can become if you put your heart into it.

We can definitely do that (in fact I've already started). I have desperately needed to advertise by putting up some posters- which we can now afford. We are also needing a table & gazebo so that we can set up at events & raise awareness of our group & epilepsy. Your group has given me some great ideas of what I can do. Once again, I can't thank you enough. Don't worry, there's no way I'll be loosing contact- your group is far too precious.
