dc.description.abstractEpilepsy which has the longest known medical history of any disease effects a large segment of our population. In the United States, there are about a million persons affected with this connition which is characterized by a seizure or fit. It has been said that about seventy five recent of this group can have seizures controlled by medication. However, other studies have shown that with control of seizures, it does not follow that the problems of this group are solved, The difficulties besetting this chronically ill group seem at times to be almost insurmountable. Our society, because of its fears and lack of knowledge about the illness, discriminates against the epileptic in employment, education and other social activities, There are even discriminatory laws relating to his employment, marriage, and driving a car.en_US
