So I have partal seizure epilepsy and it'd my frontal lobe that gets affected most of the time. after I come down from it I find that like I'm scared. almost like a little kid. I just feel whiny and just want to cry and sleep and be held. I don't know what to do about it cause like I'm 19 I don't need to act that way but at the time that's all I can think about. any advice?

      @Bee04 your grandma seems like a great person and i’m sure she loves you. never feel guilty about something you can’t control, even though that’s easier said than done. maybe you could find a couple of things that usually make you happy or give you comfort and have them at the ready for when it’s all over with if you decide not to ask your grandma

      Every single seizure I have had since I was 15 I would cry uncontrollably. every time I woke up I was in such bad pain that I couldn’t do anything else but cry. I think it’s 100% normal, you have to remember it’s all in the brain and if the people around you know that too they will be there for you without judgement. no one knows how you feel after a seizure and what you need besides you, even if it makes you feel like a kid so what? it’s what YOU need. don’t ever feel bad for it!!

      i feel the same way. i started having grand mal seizures when i was 16 and every time i came to i would cry and feel really bad about myself, asking why me? why is this happening to ME? they don’t know the cause of mine. but every time i came to i would ask my mom to lay with me and rub my head or play with my hair. having seizures are scary no doubt, you’re not alone

        @signature_sauce I guess I just feel bad if I ask someone to do that for me. My grandma is my caretaker and she already does so much for me I just feel bad adding one more thing to it.
