Yesterday I heard my husband screaming \"Help, help\" in the bedroom. I ran in and found him having a grand mal seizure on the floor. Ever since his brain operation, he still has drop & fall seizures but, now he remains awake. He is telling me that he can\'t breathe and then he does stop breathing. He always went into respiratory arrest with his seizures before but, he was unconscious. It is as though someone is holding him under water and he is drowning. Once he startedtotakea gasp I was able to guide his breathing so that he would not hyperventilate. After he came out of it, he told me that he is scared to death of having another seizure. I can\'t wait to see his doctors on 1/5/07... the surgeon told us that his seizures would be less severe. My husband is very depressed on his outcome. We thought he\'d be able to work and now he is worse than ever. Do any of you stay awake during your seizures ? If so, how do you cope?
