anyone else get embarrassed about passing out and having seizures in public?!?! it's literally the worst and when I feel like it's about to happen I get such bad anxiety which makes it worse and I WOULD run out of the area to somewhere private but I'd probably end up collapsing right then and there so I hold it in I guess for as long as possible while like hunched over walking to the nearest private area- anyone else have this issue? tips..???

      I get so embarrassed. People say its okay they want to help but coming to surrounded by people staring at me is not fun. You are not alone.

      Hi karson! Yes all the time. I remember a specific instant in high school when I was cheerleading on the football field. The weather was hot & I was dehydrated which triggers my seizures. I had fainted & seized on the field.. all the spectators rushed over & were there when I came to. I was utterly embarrassed. This has happened several times since. I always try to make it to a secluded place (yet still one where I can get help) but this minimizes the chance of a large amount of people seeing me. Maybe this isn’t the best thing but it puts my mind at ease!
