Casey's Story

'The first time Casey had a seizure I thought she had been poisoned. She was sick and shaking. I put my hand in her mouth thinking I needed to remove something toxic and she bit me quite badly. I was mortified to see her like that and really panicked. The neighbours heard me screaming and came and took control. After that I went on to Google to find out everything I could about seizures. I wanted to make sure that if it happened again, I would be prepared.

Casey's seizures are grand mal. She falls to the ground, starts paddling her legs, loses control of her bowels and starts snapping. It is very distressing to witness.
