My name is Amber, and I am a student at a college in Louisiana. I am currently doing some research on Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME) and the effects it has on patients with JME. I am also a patient with JME. I was diagnosed when I was 13 years old, so this is a very passionate subject for me. I know just how difficult it can be for someone living with JME, and also how it affects the family. I would really love to know how each of you (or your children) have experienced a diagnosis of JME. If you would, please fill out the questionnaire that I have attached to this discussion, and send it back to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Do not put your name on the questionnaire. Also, none of this information will be linked to any one person in my research. I am gathering information from a group of individuals, so the information gathered will be used as a result of the whole group. Please, take your time and really think about these questions and how JME has affected each of you. Thank you for your time, and I hope that each of you are coping well as a patient of JME.
Again, if you fill out the questionnaire, please email it to my personal email address (email@example.com) so that your information is not public.
P.S.: I have never posted anything to this website, so I don't know if my attachment will actually be seen. If it does not and you would be kind enough to fill out this questionnaire, please email me and I will send you a copy of the questionnaire. Thank you for your time and cooperation!
