Wordless Wednesday: First Aid for Seizures

What to do when someone has a seizure.  I want to add that there is no reason to call an ambulance after a seizure for most people with epilepsy.  If you call one when they ask you not to, THAT PERSON may be too out of it to protest much and could be taken to the ER. They will then have a HUGE BILL for something that they didn't  even need to go to the ER for. That's why it is important to listen to the person who just had a seizure if they say please don't call 911. #epilepsy

These are instructions for what to do when someone has a seizure. I want to add that there is no reason to call an ambulance after a seizure for most people with epilepsy. If you call one when they ask you not to, THAT PERSON may be too tired to keep protesting over and over, and could be taken to the ER. They will then have a HUGE BILL for something that they didn't even need to go to the ER for. That's why it is important to listen to the person who just had a seizure, and if they say please don't call 911, then please don't. Not to mention, being taken to the hospital when you don't want to go is a serious invasion of your privacy.
