My boyfriend and I are both 20yrs old and have been dating for roughly 2 years . He has had epilepsy since he was 17yrs old . He’s currently in school for automotive and isn’t working . We both still live with our parents and are striving to live with each other soon .
So my bf was originally told by his doctors(when he was 17) that he gets epileptic seizures when he’s stressed . They didn’t happen too much when we first started dating , only in the summer because his body would get over heated . Now they happen much more frequently , maybe everyday , for a week a month . My concern is his trigger . When we get in a arguement in which we don’t speak to each other for a few hours , it seems to stress him out so much that he’ll start to feel depressed , then he starts to black out and seize . With that one event , leads to a whole week of seizures . Last time we had an argument , that night he didn’t sleep enough , next day he went to school and blacked out , had 3 seizures in class and couldn’t remember where he was . They had to take him to the hospital and later that day we found out he had a total of 10 seizures since arriving there .
Now with him going to school he has to leave to class because he keeps blacking out and seizing .
Can anyone give me advice on how to help ? Our arguements aren’t crazy either , we just need space every once and a while when I have pms but it negatively reacts with him and I’m scared to be vocal about how I feel about things because I don’t want to push him to a negative point .
Please , Im very open to any advice !
