First Time Seizure In Front Of Bestie, How Do I Deal With It?

First Time Seizure In Front Of Bestie, How Do I Deal With It?

I stayed at my best friends house, woke up, had a seizure. She was wonderful about it. Cared for me, made sure I was safe. Now I’m feeling strange about it all.

I had epilepsy all my life . I have seizured everywhere. I’ve seizured at home , at school when I was younger, In front of and at my friends home, and any where in public.

My friends would show their care and alert me that I seizured. My true friends stayed friends with me. Those who weren’t my true friends, stopped keeping in contact and didn’t want nothing to do with me.

I am 62. I had my first seizure in the 5th grade. The girl that was with me is still a very good friend of mine. We went all the way through elementary school and high school together. She moved to another state. We stayed in touch and are still in touch on-line. Seizures are and have never been mentioned. We are just friends. Just continue to be besties. Good luck.

Don't feel strange. That's what besties do for one another. If the tables were turned, would t you do that for her? Perhaps sit down and have a good heart to heart about it.
