Partners Coping

Partners Coping

How does your wife/husband/partner cope with you having epilepsy and seizures? My wife still has flashbacks to me taking ill and when she hears a bang in the house she thinks I have collapsed having a seizure. She says she is living her life on edge. Is anyone else's partner experiencing the same thing?

I wake my fiance up since I mostly have nocturnal seizures. I guess u can say he got used to me hitting him lol. Guess it helps to keep track of my seizures?

I wish he had insurance , I have vns it’s a pacemaker for seizures it works 24/7 to help control them it’s not 100% you still need medicine but it cut down and they have to see what kind he has and if it is compadable to the vns,try the epilepsy foundation and clinics in your area

The Epilepsy Foundation may be able to pay for one of them.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member The other good news is that it sounds like he is a keeper if he is not only tolerating you hitting him while he sleeps but also keeping track of your seizures based on this.
