Just in case
I’m actually going to reblog a thing just because this is really important.
As someone who has epilepsy and used to have several grand mal seizures a day, I’d also like to add that “offer help” can range anywhere from keeping the person calm to explaining to them where they are and what they were doing to even just telling them they should sit and rest for a while longer (lack or coordination is common, and it can be hard to walk straight or see clearly).
It’s okay for them to take up to a half hour to fully regain their bearings and sort out what they were doing prior to the seizure. Just answer any questions calmly and be there for support.
If they come around and you start to panic or shake them or ask them what the heck is wrong with them they are going to freak out and panic too.
I cannot stress it enough that this is bad.
If someone has a seizure and they come out of it, please. please stay calm.
They are likely disoriented and confused, even if it’s only for a minute or two, and you don’t want them panicking on top of that because they can have another seizure as a result.
thatsjust-fuckingfantastic asked: I must ask, I saw in one of your answers, something about being demisexual? What is it? I'd genuinely love to know.
from Urban Dictionary:Demisexuality is the sexual orientation of a person who does not experience primary attraction, the physical or sexual attraction, but does experience secondary attraction, deep emotional attraction. Like asexuals, demisexuals often don’t have sex due to lack of attraction but they can and some do, when with a person they most likely already have a deep emotional connection with. Demisexuality means lack of physical or sexual attraction but it doesn’t necessarily mean lack of sex drive or that demisexuals don’t crave companionship or a relationship, that might or might not involve sex. Demisexuals can be aromatic, heteroromantic, homoromantic, biromantic, or panromantic, very much like asexuals can be. On rare occasion a demisexual person can be attracted to someone sexually but usually it is after developing a strong friendship or relationship with that person. This is no way discards someone of their demisexuality and is important to remember.Friend: Demisexuality? What the heckles is that?
Demisexual person: It’s basically sort of like being asexual but with more emotional attraction and also I might have sex if I find the rightperson and I want to try it.
Friend: Oh, okay, cool.
yeah it’s basically that thx urban dictionary. :U
