Virtual Groups, Blogs and Connections
This page offers a way to virtually connect with others living with epilepsy, caregivers, family and friends. Each site is free and active:
- eCommunities, epilepsyfoundation.
ning.com: eCommunities is a virtual chatting site that allows you to join groups or create your own. Our own denverite, Jessica Wallace created one of the largest groups called, Living Well with Epilepsy, with other 400 followers to date. Speak Up Colorado is a group generated for Coloradoans to connect with those in their own backyard.
- Living In a Brainstorm by Erica Egge: “Here, I'll talk about what it's like to grow up with and live with simple partial epilepsy. Hopefully I can give insight to those who don't live with it and can give a sense of camaraderie to those who do.”
- The Epilepsy Factor by Jessica Wallace: “For caregivers and loved ones of those living with Epilepsy. A place for support, ideas and useful information.”
- Blogs en Español: eCommunities es un sitio virtual en chat por Epilepsy Foundation of America y que le permite unir grupos o crear su propia. Hay un blog español en eCommunities: http://epilepsyfoundation.ning.com/group/hablamossobrelaepilepsia. Una miembra del Consejo de Jovenes para EFCO, Courtney Minson, ha creado un blog en español con una perspectiva de un Coloradoan quien tiene una hermana con la epilepsia. http://epilepsia-cuespanol.blogspot.com.
