Hello Friends, Regrets in life cast the longest shadows....don't allow anyone or anything to hold you back from your hopes, dreams and aspirations. Stuart (Melbourne/Australia)


Background Information

 

 

 I describe my twenty-year journey of living with epilepsy and how this highly unpredictable condition not only impacted my life, but the lives of everyone closest to me.

 The next fifteen-years I operated my stained glass business and managed staff while battling an ever-increasing number of seizures. As my condition deteriorated and my postseizure responses became more intense, I was often prone to violent outbursts that threatened not only my safety, but the safety of everyone close to me.

  I share how the perception of the condition and the socially unacceptable behaviours that occurred as a result of my postseizure (postictal) responses, eventually forced me to risk everything--I made the life-altering decision to undergo two major brain operations that I hoped would provide freedom from a life of instability, danger, and stares from strangers.

 Beyond my Control is an honest, emotional look into a highly complex and often misunderstood condition.

 If you are like me and enjoy reading true stories; written from the heart, my highly personal book is sure to be both entertaining, and indeed enlightening. No, it's not too deep, there is humour shining all the way through!

Thank you for taking an interest in Beyond my Control.

 

 

Beyond my Control is the thought provoking true story of my life, beginning with my battle trying to beat the slimming disease -- anorexia nervosa. While trying to break the vicious cycle I was in, another condition suddenly entered my life --epilepsy. I was seventeen at the time.

Birth Place
County Durham,  England
Accomplishments

Writing Beyond my Control and having my book published is a personal achievement when faced with many adversities happening in my life during that time. Becoming a qualified journalist and now being in the position of helping people less fortunate -- which is extremley rewarding.

Additional Information

Beyond my Control is ranked number 1 on Amazon Bestsellers(this hour) - medical/epilepsy. Thank you everyone, this is well beyond every expectation I could have ever imagined. Beyond my Control will make a positive difference to peoples lives. Thanks again.
