The injuries my daughter has suffered have been loads of head injuries – to the extent that a split open head. It does not faze me or my husband, broken bones, pulled muscles, countless, cuts, bruises, nails pulled from her nail bed when she had false nails on, chunks out of her tongue through biting it, dislocated knee, and dislocated shoulder. Her shoulder is now awaiting surgery after dislocating it 4 times in 10 months but due to her be pregnant she could not have it operated on.
My epilepsy carer experience is hard. You never relax as you never know when next seizure is going to happen. and seeing your child in pain and know you can’t stop it is hard. My daughter was not allowed to be alone or go out alone due to the unpredictability of her seizures and the fact she has absences when crossing the roads. We brought a dog for my daughter who we trained to alert us when she was going into a seizure and this was the best thing we did for her as the dog also helped her relax and gave my daughter a bit of freedom.
