I don't really know where else to start but at the beginning so there's no way to make this short. I'm hoping to find out what other parents do in similar situations and finally reaching out for support. My husband and I have been together for 25 years with no family history of epilepsy on either side. We have 3 kids diagnosed with generalized tonic-clonic Epilepsy, I didn't even know that was possible. My oldest had his first grand-mal seizure when he was 15 years old and was put on meds starting with Topamax. Nine years and 5 different medications later including CBD, he still has seizures 1-2, sometimes 3 times a month. Usually within an hour after waking up but sometimes in his sleep (Scary). My 15 year old was diagnosed when he was 9 and continues to suffer from grand-mals while on medication too and my youngest, 11 years old, was diagnosed with the same type this year. This has been devastating for us and I don't know how other parents with kids that have grand-mal seizures every day deal with this issue. I have depression and anxiety from it but I'll be okay. It's my kids I worry about constantly, their safety. Living in a 2-story house, the thought of them having one on the stairs is a constant real fear and the feeling of having to watch my children get beat up by their disorder without the ability to help them or protect them is wearing on me emotionally. My oldest has cracked the tiles in the shower with his head from a fall and recently fractured bones around his eye from hitting the tile floor in the bathroom that blackened both eyes. Yesterday, my 15 year old dropped from a seizure in the morning and hit his eye on the edge of the shower giving him a massive hematoma above his eye which is now blackened and swollen shut. Three weeks ago, he was by himself after being dropped off by his bus and walking home, and he dropped in the street. Strangers nearby, noticed he was having a seizure and called 911. One of them had a brother with Epilepsy and knew exactly what to do to help. Someone was looking out for him that day! Luckily, my youngest has yet to have a seizure like this. I requested an EEG because she constantly fluttered her eyes starting when she was about 5 years old and was having the same symptom my oldest had before he was diagnosed. Randomly feeling muscles jerk and body goes limp, almost dropping whatever is in their hand, but not actually having a seizure. I bought a baby monitor which is upstairs near their bedroom to avoid constantly running up to check on them every time I hear a noise or thud. Before I bought it, I found myself on the edge of my seat waiting for the inevitable and putting my ear to the adjoining wall downstairs to listen for seizure activity. I also put foam padding on the tile floor in the bathroom upstairs to try to protect them from injuries. Having to be on high alert and hyper-focused on noises and things prevents me from sleeping very much and my grades continue to decline in my college classes. My youngest is now home schooled from a hybrid charter school where she attends 1 day a week and completes courses at home online the rest of the week because she has anxiety. It was so bad it caused stomach aches and panic attacks preventing her from going to school. Sometimes, I physically had to drag her on the ground but I hated doing that, so she racked up more than 90 absences over the last 3 years. She was afraid to go to school but didn't know why and thought she was a bad child, hating herself for it. Now she's on Zoloft, which has helped tremendously. My husband also has frequent seizures but for a different reason. He has type-1 diabetes that isn't controlled and usually has grand-mal seizures in the middle of the night when his blood sugar gets too low. I'm the only one who doesn't have any medical issues, never had a seizure, and I feel like I'm the only one taking care of everybody. I don't know what I can do to keep my kids safe, aside from wrapping everything including them, in bubble wrap. I don't want them afraid to live life so I can't do that, but I joke about it. Does anyone deal with similar circumstances? What do you do to cope and what are some of the things you do to keep your kids safe from injuries?
