"It’s a disabling condition that can have severe impacts on the person living with it at all times."
Sharon Ross has suffered from depression for more years than she can remember. Although she visited every doctor under the sun, nothing, including medication, therapy or psychiatric hospitals seemed to help. After a visiting many doctors and Facebook groups she discovered that she had impaired processing, memory and concentration and these symptoms were making her depressed. Eventually she was diagnosed with frontal lobe epilepsy and she is now on the ketogenic diet (a low carb/ high fat diet supervised by a dietitian) in the hope that these will relieve her symptoms.
