Ruth's story

Friday 25 September 2015

In this film Ruth speaks about her tumour induced epilepsy and how it has affected her life.

Ruth was diagnosed with a brain tumour following a generalised seizure which came out of the blue. Whilst she knows she has a tumour she does not know what type as she has not had a biopsy or surgery. It is thought that it is an oligodendroglioma. In this video Ruth speaks about her feelings towards her tumour induced epilepsy and how it has affected her life. She speaks about what she can and cannot do, the limitations of epilepsy and what support is available for her, she also speaks about what some of the triggers for her are and how she manages these.
