Seizures

I think watching a bad seizure is about one of the most terrifying things I've ever seen. I work with adults who have disabilities, so I see seizures. It's always scary, even when they only last thirty seconds. Just knowing there's nothing in the world you can do but watch. I hate it.

A woman had a bad one today. She turned blue, her breaths slowed down to about one per ten-fifteen seconds. I couldn't find her pulse for what felt like forever, and when I finally got it, it was so weak. The whole thing lasted about 8 min.
I just hate it. There's nothing worse then just sitting there holding her and praying and trying to run over the steps for cpr in your head while waiting for an ambulance.

My son used to have seizures and still has medicine that I always have with me for emergencies. I have had other frights in my life but none as terrifying as seeing my own son having a seizure then going limp. I thought maybe he was going to die the first time he had a big one. Being with him in an ambulance was so scary. I used to have seizures myself and I hate them.

Wow. It is scary. It's just the not knowing and knowing nothing you can do about it :(
