You Are Not Alone: Combating Social Isolation

Earlier this week, I was grateful to have the occasion to moderate a discussion on behalf of the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan, entitled, “You Are Not Alone: Combating Social Isolation.” This discussion was a conference call, and it was was recorded, so it felt a bit like making a podcast but with others listening in and participating live.

On this call, I interviewed four people who have experiences living with epilepsy, and we discussed tips for addressing social isolation, a topic which is quite suddenly relevant for us all.

I was so touched with how this turned out, and I’d love to share it with you. It was meaningful for me to share advice on this topic from my own experiences and reflections too.

This recording is…

1) an excellent introduction to epilepsy and the social barriers that many face,
2) a topic remarkably relevant to everyone right now, and
3)  an occasion to express pride and gratitude in shared-identity and community-belonging.

It would mean a lot to me if you had a listen.

I’m embedding the YouTube recording of this call. If you have any trouble accessing it in my post, you can also go to this link. There are also closed captions available if you choose that option.

Thanks, all, and I’m thinking of you too in this wild time of social isolation.

Take good care.
