MY POST SEIZURE PLAN
When I wake from a seizure, I am always exhausted, embarrassed, nauseous, in a bad mood and amnesiac. So it is very comforting to have a plan in place that I can just slip into and recover; because once I have a seizure, I am more likely to have a few more within a couple of hours - it is adapted to this. I am a very independent person but after a seizure I need support so whether it is my parents or my roommate; as soon as they hear ‘seizure’, the same things are in place 💜
1. Extra soft blankets.
2. Loose pajamas
3. A small white board and marker (for the period I can’t communicate properly)
4. Rescue meds + how to use page
5. Box of tissues
6. Dry shampoo - no showers for at least a day incase of another seizure
7. Sick bag -postictal nausea 🤢 (sorry gross I know! 🙈) 8. Usual medication + painkillers for the headache
9. Hot water bottle/ ice ( depending on the injury I gave myself!)
10. Bottle of water
What do you like to have after a seizure?

Судороги - по праву один из самых распространенных симптомов в ветеринарной неврологии мелких домашних животных.
Первые упоминания о "судорогах" у животных встречаются несколько тысяч лет назад. Одомашнивание собаки привело к более бдительному за ней наблюдению, и уже тогда люди столкнулись с этой крайне неприятной патологией.
Шли годы, накапливались знания, и на сегодняшний день о судорогах известно очень многое. Однако, все равно знаний недостаточно, чтобы справляться с этой проблемой успешно.
Но некоторые вещи известны доподлинно. Например, при эпилептических приступах животное (как и человек) теряет сознание. Сам приступ обычно идёт не долго, от пары секунд до 3 минут и всегда сопровождается постиктальным периодом - или постсудорожным состоянием.
Постиктус  проявляется бесцельным хождением, повышенным возбуждением, дезориентацией, снижением чувствительности конечностей, вялостью, а зачастую и клиническим уровнем снижения сознания - депрессией, ступором. Некоторые нарушения мы видим на представленном видео, где у кошки Мии случился эпилептический приступ и выход из него.
Состояние постиктуса связано с тем, что головной мозг, после пережитого "гиперимпульса" в коре, старается стабилизировать свои системы.

Глобально, постиктальный период объясняют несколькими теориями:
-истощение нейротрансмиттеров (веществ-передатчиков нервного импульса)
-активное торможение новых импульсов
-нарушение кровотока в мозге -увеличение количества опиоидных рецепторов.
Иногда, помощь таким животным не требуется, и мозг справляется сам. Иногда, помочь можно только в условиях клиники и специальными препаратами, особенно если период постиктуса затягивается до пары часов. В любом случае, если вы видите нечто подобное у своего питомца - обратитесь к невропатологу. Мы знаем, что делать!

The face of dog epilepsy 💔. Clarence my pup has been having seizures since February and he just had two more right now. This is even after starting a second medication in July. I guess this means he is not responding to either of his meds now which worries me, because after this there is not much the vet that can do that is affordable. This is him in the post ictal phase, where he is bewildered, off balance, and he paces a lot. The post ictal phase is directly following the seizure. #epilepsy #dogepilepsy #postictal

The options were: (1) stay home and sleep like a sensible man in his 30s (2) put on glitter tattoos and go to #nocturnalwonderland. #glittat #ravebaerdy #insomniac #hearingloss #postictal #noDVTs #lookattheotherpeople 📷 cred @jerryfantastic

There's a first time for everything. First time to experience a seizure and ride an ambulance. Hahaha. Pati ba naman sa bagong trabaho uso ma-ER? Haha. Thanks to the Polar Bear for accompanying me because totoo na wala kang maaalala at all. Hahahaha.

#scars #scrapes #bruises from 5, yes that's right, 5 #seizures Saturday night. 20 minutes without oxygen total, all the while using the precious little amount of #oxygen during the huge energy expenditure during 5 #epilepsy events.
Apparently it took 7 guys from the ER and ambulance to hold me down afterwards whem I was #postictal i.e. after when you have no control over your actions, and bc you're scared waking up with strangers holding you down your natural reaction, mine anyway, is to fight back.

Onto the next #eeg

One instance when all the #kettlebells #graciejiujitsu #deadlifts aren't an advantage, in fact they're a liability bc yout end up hurting others and yourself worse.
The #fear that accompanies the after effects of #seizures is unlike anything ive experienced outside of #death and that was when I was covered in the blood of someone I loved while holding their dead body. Idk about other way to describe it, and to get across my point of how serious it is.
I choose to act tough so my family, especially my girlfriend and my parents, don't worry as much. If anyone could know how scared I am at that point it would make them cry and never trust me alone again.
The Dr's were going to intubate me (put in a breathing tube and induce a #coma bc I couldn't chance going w/o oxygen any longer.
Think of this. A #epilepticseizure #seizure is a ton of electrical impulses going haywire, cascading in your brain causing every fiber of muscle in your body to fire uncontrollably. All the while, your brain is without oxygen, you aren't breathing, and the oxygen deficit is higher than toy could ever push yourself training. Afterwards, you pass out for 15 or 20 mins, then when you wake up it's like you were on a huge bender and cant remember what you did or when you passed out...

Trate de investigar conceptos que no entendía o confundía cuando estaba en la escuela, conceptos que siempre te preguntan pero por alguna razón nunca se aprendes, es como si se quedara en tu mente como una fotografía borrosa... sabes que está ahí sabes que conoces la respuesta que sabes quien está en esa fotografía... pero aún así no está completamente claro #illustration #postictal #sharpie #draw

Had a microseizure, fell out of a van opening the door while post-ictal, got a contusion. Fun times. #invisibledisability #bruises #seizuressuck #postictal

Can you tell I’m having a seizure?? Seizures aren’t just falling on the floor convulsing!! Did you know it takes 48 hours to fully recover from a seizure? #seizure #epilepsy #simplepartialseizures #postictal #epilepsywarrior #epilepsyawareness #epilepsywarriorqueen

Balancing bold with brash can be an everyday occurrence of any illness. The examples I give in this post are just a few that come to mind when thinking about Epilepsy and are some that I believe always are worthy of more elaboration! The definition of bold and brash seems lost in translation when levels of medications are fluctuating, grasping onto reality in a postictal stage, fighting for resources, finding ways to boost an immune system due to susceptibility to infections, etc. #stagesofepilepsy #epilepsyawareness #epilepsyfighter #epilepsy #epilepsyfight #epilepsystrong #epilepsystrength #seizures #seizuressuck #epilepsysucks #epilepsysupport #epilepsyadvocate #epilepsystigma #ictus #epilepsywarrior #epilepsywarriors #epilepsywarriorsunited #complexpartialseizure #purplewarrior #aeds #purpleforepilepsy #invisibleillnessawareness #invisibleillness #epileptic #intractableepilepsy #nosorriesforseizures #purpleforepilepsyawareness #postictal #anticonvulsant

Ugh what a long day. I had another seizure. Now mom has to make me more meds...
