Has anyone else nearly broke down when watching their loved ones go through seizures? My wife was recently diagnosed with Epilepsy and currently titrating up on medication. She "seems" to be doing better (I think) and I feel like I am fortunate that she isn't falling down etc. Her seizures include verbal "tics", zoning out and now bought's of laughter. Last night she had a "twitching" head movement thing going on for several seconds and wasn't responsive. That was pretty much what pushed me to tear up and fall into depression. So far I was handling it well, even interjecting a bit of "humor" which I think helped. But I am now having a rough time keeping my head up. Even when I know the medications will help (hopefully) once she is at the full starting dose. My kids are also slipping, they like me at first kind of laughed things off. We both reassured them that she would be getting better. But yesterday my son (11) started to get very upset. Which even now thinking about it is causing me to tear up.
How does everyone handle this? How do you handle the kids, we have always been open and honest. But they are all three getting freaked out now and I can tell reassuring them isn't working.
