There are many different types of epilepsy and each case can create different problems for the men that have it. But does it really control a person’s life?
The answer is both yes and no according to mature student James Barter, but he believes that guys shouldn’t be put off going to university just because they have epilepsy.
James, 26, is a third year student studying Biomedical Sciences at Sheffield Hallam University. I interviewed him to find out how having epilepsy has had an impact on his life and, in particular, his decision to go to university.
