1977 was, for one fourteen year old boy the year that changed his life - the year he was diagnosed with epilepsy.

Glyn Marston woke up in the middle of the road early one August morning and had no recollection of how he got there, he didn't realise that this was the beginning of the end of life as he knew it.

Glyn was eventually witnessed in an epileptic seizure and was forced to accept that his life would never be the same again, accepting that he had an illness that killed his mum's sister in 1961 was to be a terrifying experience - for she died 18 months before Glyn was born and at the age of fourteen.

Glyn Marston tells of his struggle to accept a change of life whereas he would be confined to his house for his own safety, a time when the family were advised not to speak about the condition because folk didn't really understand epilepsy and ignorance would be evident because of the stigma attached to the illness.

Glyn Marston recalls a painful time of his life, the year that was stolen from him because of epilepsy- 1977 was Glyn's first year of an illness that he had to try to understand, his first year of epilepsy
