BE careful.
If you feel a seizure coming on and you're near you bed get into it and ride out the seizure ~ IF you can.

I understand how people that dont know epilespy are scared. People you know, you should tell them about your epilespy.

why would someone be embarrest, a person with Cancer is not embarresed. People care to much what others are thinking, others don't matter, and if they give you stupid comments, look for other friends. People ask me why I don't drive, I just say I have a ban for 2 years due to medical issues, most think it is drunk driving, but I don't need to explain myself to anyone....let them think what they want.

Hi John -That's exactly what ever 'embarrassed' me bout seizures-
loss of bladder control. As you said like on a bus or in a store cause
I'm an avid drinker-water not booze. For me even a little one does so
I tried all kinds of pads but no help. Reluctant to try "diapers' but then
I found 'Always' briefs and was amazed never any leaks even.Theyre
just like little panties and fit like a glove. Told a guy with epilepsy bout
them. He says they're the same for men and work too.
Now when I have a seizure this worry is gone. Still hate them of course
but know I'll be fine after. If you haven't yet- try em you'll like em. . .
