Just in case
I’m actually going to reblog a thing just because this is really important.
As someone who has epilepsy and used to have several grand mal seizures a day, I’d also like to add that “offer help” can range anywhere from keeping the person calm to explaining to them where they are and what they were doing to even just telling them they should sit and rest for a while longer (lack or coordination is common, and it can be hard to walk straight or see clearly).
It’s okay for them to take up to a half hour to fully regain their bearings and sort out what they were doing prior to the seizure. Just answer any questions calmly and be there for support.
If they come around and you start to panic or shake them or ask them what the heck is wrong with them they are going to freak out and panic too.
I cannot stress it enough that this is bad.
If someone has a seizure and they come out of it, please. please stay calm.
They are likely disoriented and confused, even if it’s only for a minute or two, and you don’t want them panicking on top of that because they can have another seizure as a result.
I’m reblogging for anyone because I am actually a person who has/had seizure’s and I almost died from one 8 years ago. I’m lucky to be alive and saved so save a life guys.
reblogging because someone once told me that if someone is having a seizure that you should use a spoon to hold their tongue down because they can choke on it and I was like um no pretty sure you’re not supposed to stick anything in their mouth.
This goes for all living thing’s that have seizures. My cousin has epilepsy and although her medication does help, she still has seizures now and then. I was taught from an early age to move all dangerous things from near her, quickly and let her body do what it must. Then sit quietly with her when the seizure had ended. Then three years ago my dog started to have seizures and would ‘come to’ fretting and whimpering. Educate yourself guys.
I have epilepsy. I’ve been lucky in the past to have had people with experience dealing with seizures be near me when I have had grand mals
The reason I just love Beyonce with dark hair more than blonde is because the bitch looks like she will snatch your spine out of your back and laugh as you fall to the ground like a puddle. With dark hair she really looks like she can be Baphomet’s mother. With dark hair my God looks like the African Queen who sold other Africans to white men in the 1600s. Dark haired Beyonce looks mean enough to slap your mother in the face with her church hat on the sabbath. Dark haired Beyonce would plant drugs in your car and report your license plate. Dark haired Beyonce is the bitch to key your car if you cheat on her and engrave her signature in it and dare you to call the police. Dark haired Beyonce is the bitch who will sleep with your dad while your mom is out of town and still tell you your outfit is cute at school. That is why dark haired Beyonce is my favorite.
