One cold night and out of the blue, she fell and started to foam in the mouth, her feet and hands started to spasm and shake, and mum was engulfed with fear and panic, she had never seen anything like it. In this state of utter chaos and with fear of losing another child, she settled for and relied on a third world and orthodox remedy of jostling her out of the seizure. The method was barbaric but effective. What I bore witness to was days of agony and pain which was the aftermath of the orthodox redirection methods. That was enough for me to vow as a child to understand what had happened and to find a better solution. Fortunately, I had the chance to move away from home, years of studies and working in the disability support area was all I needed to understand that the condition described above is a seizure. I now know that ensuring that medication was administered consistently is an effective proactive strategy. I now know and understand that placing the person in a recovery position whilst seeking for help if the seizure persist is the reactive strategy and best practice. The person is my sister, the intervention was provided by mother and I have been responsible for educating both on how to effectively manage the situation.
