The epilepsy program at Streator Unlimited helped me get funding so that I could have a personal support worker. She helps me manage my medications and plan out nutritious meals. I’m happy to report that my seizures are now under control and I’ve been seizure-free for over a year.
“At our meetings, we talk about how to manage our seizures, and I’ve learned new ways to help me remember when to take my medications. I’ve noticed that I’ve had fewer seizures since working with the program. I especially enjoyed the training that was developed for self-advocates. I’ve shared my wants and needs with friends and family, so they know what to do if I have a seizure.”
