I think the AES Annual Meeting 2013 and the photos from this convention are outstanding and a means of conveying the good this and other organizations do for the epilepsy patient population.
I still ask as a spouse of one of the “Unwanted stepchildren of Cyberonics”, the depression patients, why is there no mention and/or promotion relating to the depression patients? Why is there no coverage of the annual DBSA (Depression Bipolar Support Alliance) conventions or that of The Brain and Behavior Research Foundation or NAMI? Worse yet is your total denial of the existence of depression patients using the FDA approved VNS Therapy?
Isn’t it obvious to you folks that your lack of concern, acknowledgement or response is repugnant to many of the patients who utilize your device and therapy for depression and to their support persons as well who read this forum?
Isn’t it time you folks came out of the closet and admit you have others with just as serious an illness?
