    My family has hereditary epilepsy(Mine are petit mals) and my brother's were petit mals but I've witnessed a grand mal before(When I was real young) and I was terrified so I have to thank you, both as an epileptic and a previously scared five year old, for making this.

Thank you =)  
Though its sad you have to endure this.  =(  I would have rather found a cure than drawn an image, but Im just a small woman behind a small screen =(  Sorry =(  
I hope your surroundings are nice to you, I know far too many people with epilepsy who have to fight severe bullying for beeing ill. 
Ill world.  =(

Thats true ^^   But you cant do anything about it sadly. If you catch someone in a seizure that includes biting the tongue (some kind of seizures dont, like Absences), its too late to "force" something between the teeth - the damage you can do to the teeth and jaw is much bigger than the damage the patient can do themselves to their tongue  ^^  And its easier and cheaper to heal a injured tongue than to theal a broken jaw or tooth =)  The most dangerous thing about biting your tongue severly is the blood loss / choking on the blood -   and this goes within the "call 911 if the patient is injured!" after the seizure, and for choking on the blood, the recovery position is preventing that =)

Hmm, true:) I know a person who has epilepsy, so this is quite useful. One of the bad side effects of epilepsy is that  they can't drive a car..
What is it that made you so devoted to E A???? I mean, I know there are a lot of great causes but normally someone choses one for a specific reason.

I went to an event once and a woman had a fit. Thankfully, just in case of an emergency Paramedics were on hand for the entirety of the event. The noise that's made is quite horrible, had me worried.

Thanks :)

Hey =)

My Reason?  ._.  Its one of the most silliest reasons ever -  its a fictional character I created in 2003, him->  damienmuerte.deviantart.com/ar…

Driving a car with epilepsy - well its still possible.  The law is different in each country, here in germany you have to be one year seizure-free to get your license back.  Well, nobody "takes" the license, I sadly know someone with severe seizures who still drives (can slap him for this idiotic manner... but its no use! *sigh*) , my husband had 4 seizures 3-4 years ago, he wasnt allowed to drive for 6 months - but nobody took his license. It was just a "tip from the docs". But If something happened, no insurance would have paid for it ^^  Thats the huge risk. I would never take that risk myself :/

It does seem crazy. A person I knew had to wait by law here, and then get a doctor certificate as proof so they could drive again. Very Strict here xD

I'm getting into manga/anime drawings at the moment, but I'm not good enough to draw my own lines yet xD

I like Damien muerte, you always have him as a character for your howrse layouts xD

I have some information for caregivers that helped me through the seizures I used to have. Can you add it? It might be able to help others, it helped me for years; I was born prematurely and because of it I had temporal lobe epilepsy in the right side of my brain:

Putting ice on a patient's body (human or animal) when they first go into a seizure can help shock them out of the seizure. The use of ice can help to shorten the seizures. The most sensitive areas are under the arms, the backs of the legs, the groin, and the back of the neck. You should prepare the bag before the seizure occurs. This ensures that you administer the treatment on time.

Thanks for making this and getting the word out!

Hi there!

This is a very interesting information, but I guess - If I make a art out of it, it will be a seperate one, not into this comic strip. See, this is first aid advice, when someone happens to find someone in a seizure. The information you gave me needs preparation, like, in a hospital if we know someone has seizures, we can use this information. But finding someone on the street woudlnt make this possible. =)

Although, it might be a great advice for relatives of people who suffer it, thanks for the advice =)

Sorry, Im deleting your comments now. Not because I dont like you or the comments, but because I dont allow such avatars beeing used on my Epilepsy-Works.

Your avatar can cause a seizure, and I lost a online friend thanks to such a avatar-inducted seizure last year. If you cant cfhange your avatar to save a life, I cannot allow it to stay on here, sorry =/

Das ist echt klasse!
Meine langjährige Freundin hat Epilepsie, und wir haben uns drei Jahre lang eine Wohnung geteilt.
Ihre Mutter hatte mir zwar erklärt, was im Falle eines Anfalls zu tun sei (und ich musste es in den drei Jahren auch nur ein einziges Mal anwenden), aber es ist immer gut, etwas zu haben, wo man nachschauen kann, wie man sich am Besten verhält, wenn jemand in der Nähe einen Anfall hat.

aparently an epileptic can bite off your finger if you try to keep them from biting their tongue, ive only ever bit my tongue though

Yeah, one reason why they stopped putting things int he mouth. On the other side, most people approach the seizure patient when the seizure is already "running", and then theres nothing you can put into the mouth anyways - if you dont want to break out some teeth ^;;
