I am sure I am not the only one to get this kind of treatment. Do you ever feel like people stare at you like you are a ticking time bomb? I am a fortunate person who has my Epilepsy under control as long as I have my medication. The last time that I had a grand-maul seizure was in December when I was in the middle of moving and missed several doses of my medication. Before that, I had gone about 2 years without problems. So basically, as long as I have my meds, I am pretty much fine. Well, I just joined my local gym because I have A LOT of weight to loose. My sister in law just joined recently as well. Last night, we went together. On the way, she made the comment that she is always scared that I will have a seizure when I am there with her and she wouldn't know what to do. I told her not to worry about it and that I should be fine as long as I don't miss my medication. She still was looking nervous and almost seemed kind of panicky about it. She said "what should I do if you have one?". I told her that there really isn't much that she can do. Just try to get stuff that could hurt me out of my general area so that My body doesn't bang it to it; and make sure that I don't wind up laying on my back (just in case I vomit). I haven't vomited during a seizure before, but it is always a possibility for any of us. It took me a little bit to get her settled down. I understand that it is because she cares, but sometimes it can be a little upsetting to know that you have friends and family scared to be around you because of slight possibilities.
