Thought I wouldnt ever get finished with it.
I wanted to get it within the contest time in my group, and enter it (not to win, but to have a entry more ), but I didnt get finished. ._.
November is Epilepsy Awareness Month!
Get Epilepsy Smart , People
Found any mistakes? Something I could add?
Simply tell me, I still can change things ^^
Damien & Zeron are my Characters
Virus Idea @ Warner Brothers
The other times she had grand seizure, unfortunatly, I wasn´t always around or near to help. She would fall from the stairs and hit her head, a lot of accidents.... and in a bath, well she got 3rd degree burns that kepted her hospitalized for over a year.
I think awareness that some medications CAN and WILL cause reversable epilepsy is SO important. Also the dangers of taking long baths (our heater wasn´t automatic, so the hot water kepted coming out a very long time she was unconscious).
Bottom line: Special care must be taken with people that suffer epilepsy in baths, showers. Installing something like they have in hospitals (a line that is pulled if you fall) should be obligatory. It could have avoided my sister almost losing her legs.
Sorry for the rant, but I had to open up about this...
- 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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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 =/
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.
Ich will es eh noch auf Deutsch übersetzen XD Irgendwie schreib ich alles, was Epilepsie-mäßig ist, auf Englisch, krieg es aber nicht hin es auch auf Deutsch zu beschreiben. ._.
Anyway, I really like this guide. Nice job.
And your drawing.. dont really know, what to say. Bcause is as great as always
No mistkaes? After all youre a better nurse than me XD
Thank you Victor!
And you still sure you dont want to work in my hospital? I need good qualified docs like you!
well done guide (and well drawn too)
this should be in featured art IMHO
