Andrea VonMarkle arrived in Madison by helicopter ambulance 2 years ago, her life hanging in the balance. One month earlier she'd been a healthy 21-year-old juggling community college, waitressing, and weightlifting at a local gym.

"The door was open, and our dog was running down the street," VonMarkle says of the scene that greeted her aunt.

The United Kingdom’s (UK) charity for young people with epilepsy, YOUNG EPILEPSY, evaluated the difficulties under lockdown for the 112,000 young people with epilepsy. I would extrapolate these difficulties to the general epilepsy population in the United States. You are not alone.
Key findings from the study of nearly 300 young people with epilepsy and their parents and carers probably parallel your experiences in the U.S. under COVID-19.
