Sita Gaia

Patient Leader

Hi! I am Sita and I have been an advocate for Epilepsy ever since 2012. I felt very lonely when my seizures returned after being seizure free for ten years. I decided to start blogging about it, and in 2016 I was very lucky to present "The Hell of Chronic Illness" at TedxStanleyPark in Vancouver, BC. I am working hard to create my own business to help people with Epilepsy to live connected, fulfilling lives.

Healthcare Collaborator: Patient Hilarious Patient Leader Advocating for Another

I have known Sita many years. She was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 8 and despite the severity of this condition she remained cheerful and optimistic. She went on to get a degree in Social Work,. an almost impossible achievement. Her blog touches on so many things: body image, depression and mental illness, self care, and epilepsy.  — Jude
