Happy Friday! I just received some exciting news!
The Epilepsy Foundation of MN is expanding the number of Connect Meetings that they are holding each week! These Connect Meetings are held on Thursday evenings around Minnesota from 6pm-8pm.
After adding a few more meeting locations, EFMN now offers their meetings at:
- Brooklyn Park Area: North Hennepin Community College
- Apple Valley Area: Apple Valley Community Center
- Eden Prairie Area: Eden Prairie Library
- Woodbury Area: Woodbury Library
These meetings are open to anyone that is currently, or has been affected by seizures. That means you personally, family, friends, and anyone that wants to connect and learn more about seizures and Epilepsy.
More information can be found here: Epilepsy Foundation of MN website
Connecting with others that have Epilepsy can go a long way to help us reduce our feelings of isolation. Epilepsy can many times make us feel like a burden to those around us. We’re relying on people for so many facets of everyday life, and many people without seizures just don’t understand what that’s like. Getting perspective from others living a similar life to us can help remind us that everyone has their own version of “normal” life. Ours may look different from other’s, but that doesn’t make it weird or wrong.
Have you found other meetings near you that have helped you connect? Let us know! Have a fantastic weekend and don’t forget to Seize The Day!
