Book release: In Our Own Words

Book release: In Our Own Words

Congratulations to Dr. Lorna Myers and her co-author, Mary Martiros for publishing a new book called In Our Own Words: Stories of those living with, learning from and overcoming the challenges of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) 

This book is a compilation of testimonials given by people from across the US and abroad about their experiences of living with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES). The aim in writing this book was to give a voice to those who are often misunderstood by medical professionals and the general public.
