Beyond my Control - One Man's Struggle with Epilepsy, Seizure Surgery & Beyond

Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
My book titled: Beyond my control is the true story of my life, beginning with my battle trying to beat the eating 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.

I describe my twenty year journey of living with epilepsy and how the unpredictable disease has not only impacted my life but the lives of everyone close 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 anyone unfortunate to be close by!

I was offered seizure surgery which, (if successful) would provide freedom from a life on instability, danger, and stares from strangers. Beyond my Control provides an honest, emotional look into a highly complex and often misunderstood condition. With perseverance helped me break through the darkness and find hope on the other side.

Thank you for taking the time to read about: Beyond my Control.

Good health and happiness, Stuart

Hello, fellow authors,

We are a unique society, sharing ideas and understanding the emotions of being a writer in a competitive marketplace. Only an author knows the feelings of rejection, and the immense jubilation we feel when readers compliment us on our work......We are in the business of extremes! I am sure most of you would agree, we do it because we love it, and we couldn't imagine life without writing.

As we are nearing the end of 2008, I would like to take this… Continue
