The Monster that Lives Within by H. Mikel Feilen, is an enlightening, informative, and inspirational look at a misunderstood and hideous disease, epilepsy. In the United States alone, more than three million people suffer with some form of a seizure disorder, and that number increases every year. Many epileptics keep their malady a secret until the monster makes an appearance, and their secret is out. Mr. Feilen believes all epileptics should be advocates of their disease, to be proud of who they are, and to educate those unaware of epilepsy, but not to hide. In The Monster that Lives Within, you will find out facts about epilepsy and a few of the myths too, and each reader will understand the importance of two things when battling the monster: perspective and attitude. As an added bonus, all of the crazy and unusual artwork inside the book was created by the author, which he feels was highly influenced by his brain disorder . . . not LSD. It is now time to sit back, relax, and enjoy as our monster within becomes our Shrek. Epilepsy, friend or foe?
