Because there's no better way to explain than to show

When your life breaks and there is no real cure ...

Making a seizure victim stand in place is cruel. Help them to a comfortable place, and, for God's sake, be quiet. Talking to a seizure victim does not help. Comfort does.

Quietly comforting a victim is good

Trying to talk to me in the middle of a seizure makes things worse. It's stupid. Don't do it.

One of several seizure types that afflict me. Now you know something of my life as it is every day.

    In the past I've witnessed a friend having seizures and didn't know what would help. Your personal comments have helped me to know how to be of help and comfort.
    I feel for anyone who suffers from this debilitating condition.

  2. These are all heart-breaking to various degrees. It doesn't help that Hollywood portrays seizures as usually one type and usually wrong at that.
