100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
reblogging this again with the helpful note that this seems to be about seizures of the Grand Mal sort. There are a lot of different kinds of seizures, not just ones where the person convulses, etc. Absent seizures are also a thing, and they were the ones I used to have. They can present themselves in a couple different ways, so if you do have loved one/friend/partner/etc who is affected by seizures other than Grand Mal, its worth asking about or looking up information on~!
As an epileptic, this is really helpful. So many people are uneducated in what to do in the event of a seizure, which is quite alarming given that epilepsy is very common. Please remember these steps, the could save a life.
