I’m Joel Greatbatch, a kiwi cowboy who was born in Dallas, Texas, but was raised in Auckland, New Zealand. I now live in Austin, Texas and this is a blog focused on my personal experiences of epilepsy and the issues that can arise for any people diagnosed with the disorder. There are over 40 types of epilepsy, some with major consequences, others more minor; but all have an effect on one’s life one way or another.

Aside from this blog I also write another personal blog, Kiwi Cowboy, regarding my experiences in Austin and interviews with the bands and artists in our music mad city. Further freelance works of mine are updated at www.joelgreatbatch.com.
