Not sure what to do
I hope that some of you may have some advice or maybe have already been thorough this with a loved one. My son is 9 now and has many different types of seizures. Today he started asking me if i had a video of him having one. I told him that I do not and he ask that I film him the next time because he wants to see what it looks like. I can understand him being curious and it is his body after all, but to be honest, no matter how many times I watch him have one it tears me up and I just don;t think I can bring myself to film him. I am usually timing them and pulling out O2 and what not. I have found a few videos online, but again I do not find them very pleasant to watch. Do you think I should show him a video of someone else having one and see if that will scratch his itch or should I just not allow it. I would hate to frighten him, but all day he has been asking and once he gets something in his head it is hard to talk him out of it.
Id this a normal thing for people with seizures to want to see. I can see how it may anser some questions for them but again this is just so new to me and I do not want to do anything that could harm him emotionally.
