Let's face it....we can't be protected from everything.....We can do things to minimalize the risks to ourselves and others..but there's no guarantee. For example, my family went camping in February. (I know, it's cold...talk to the hubby... ) There we were, sitting around a nice campfire, just talking. We'd eaten dinner about an hour before, and I was at a comfortable temperature. The next thing I know, my hubby is bending over me and asking if I'm okay. I found out that I had had a tonic clonic seizure and fallen into the firepit...hitting my eye on a rock. My hubby ran through the firepit, (burning his feet), picked me up and laid me down on a sleeping bag that my mother in law got out of our tent. I ended up with a beauty of a shiner. My poor hubby got dirty looks whenever we went out together. Between the black eye and the bruises I had on my arms and legs, people probably thought he beat up on me....Nothing could be farther from the truth. But it just goes to show that life happens. We can be doing everything right and still have a seizure.
