When a child has his first seizure the biggest impact is to the parents or caregiver, not the child. Watching your child having a seizure is beyond scary! As parents, we sometimes forget that the people around us are also scared. Epilepsy is scary.
As a mom, I get to talk to the doctors, the specialists, and the neurologists. Friends, family, and even people we are around daily don’t. As a mom of one child epilepsy and one with febrile seizures, I see them often.
