Based on a true story MOMMY, I FEEL FUNNY! introduces the reader to Nel, a little girl who is diagnosed with epilepsy at an early age. The story takes you through the days immediately following Nel's first seizure. Suddenly, Nel and her family are faced with thoughts, fears and emotions that come hand-in-hand with the discovery and acceptance of epilepsy. While growing up with epilepsy the author found that there were no reading materials on this topic available for children. Even today, only a handful exist. With that in mind, "Mommy, I Feel Funny!" evolved. It is the author's hope that this uplifting picture book, "Mommy, I Feel Funny!" provides an optimistic perspective for children with epilepsy.
