Hi Jeffrey!

Welcome to the site. It's a great place to be. We're happy to have you here, and if there's anything I can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask.
I also wanted to let you know about two groups I created.

Living Well with Epilepsy
http://epilepsyfoundation.ning.com/group/livingwellwithepilepsy

Step Up and Speak Out, for those of us who are tired of the stigma and lack of knowledge attached to Epilepsy.
