My infant baby 11 year old cat Nina just had her first seizure; she had a regular hairball then manicly ran into every room of the house, slamming herself into objects, then stopped on the floor in front if me and had a minute long seizure and peed herself.
When she stopped she went over a few feet and layed down and collected herself. She’s completely back to normal now but that was absolutely terrifying and upsetting.
If anyone has any tips on how to help your pet while they’re having a seizure or causes and treatments that would be really helpful because Nina is more important to me the if anyone has any tips on how to help your pet while they’re having a seizure or causes and treatments that would be really helpful because Nina is more important to me than my Dad and basically every human friend I have 💔

I had a feeling Beth would have a seizure this chapter 😞 but I'm so glad she still had a good day after! And I'm so so happy Harry still takes care of her without making her feel like a burden, which we know is a super big thing for her. And when they both said they're new to this whole thing so one doesn't feel inferior .... Ugh I love them!!! Thank you for the great update!!

Harry does his best to take care of her without coddling her or making her feel like an invalid. It’s a tricky balance but Beth definitely appreciates the effort he puts in to make her feel better. Thank you!!

This is a Movie Health Community warning. It is intended to inform people of potential health hazards in movies, and does not reflect the quality of the film itself.

The Da Vinci Code has a brief scene at night showing the strobe lights on the outside of a plane.

There is some fast-paced action in this film, during which the camera moves at extreme speeds and shakes a bit. One character’s claustrophobia is emphasized in multiple scenes, and may make some viewers feel uncomfortable.

stop using “seizure” to describe your movements because spoiler alert it fucking sucks to have actual seizures

literally just wanted to see how to do kipping pullups i dont need them described as something that makes you look like an epileptic patient

Thought I had a seizure last night but turns out that severe stress/anxiety/sleep deprivation can cause uncontrollable body convulsions so that’s fun
It's Time for Answers on Yahoo's Email Scanning
You should know if the government thinks it can deputize your email provider to scan through your messages. Like most people, we were shocked at reports earlier this month that Yahoo scanned its hundreds of millions of users’ emails looking for a digital signature on behalf of the government. We join millions of Yahoo users in wanting to know how this happened.

Hey could you please tag any flashing posts with "#epilepsy warning" or "#seizure warning". My epilepsy is photosensitive and can be set off by things like the giff you posted and you might have other followers with similar issues

Yeah of course. I am so sorry to anyone that has been affected by any of my posts that include flashing lights/images <3

It's so weird, I clicked on the chapter, hadn't read a word and wondered to myself hmmm I wonder if Beth will have a seizure again in the story and wow!!! Loved the chapter I'm glad beth and harry talked a little about their relationship!!

Oooh you’ve got a sixth sense for these things!!

anonymous asked:

Ahhhhhh that chapter!!!! I loved how cute they are with each other! Although Beth had a seizure, she definitely felt better about herself in the aftermath and that's so good for her! Theyre still avoiding talking about the inevitable though 👀Can't wait until the next chapter!

We’ve seen a huge transformation in Beth, as subtle as it may seem. The first seizure she had really took a toll on her, both physically and emotionally. It knocked her confidence and made her pull away from her friends. We’re seeing the opposite happen this time around. Her acceptance of what she has to deal with is enormous

anonymous asked:

Can you do one where Y/N has seizures but Shawn is there to calm her down ?

I’m afraid not, darling. I don’t know if seizures are a trigger warning or not, but I have little to no knowledge on seizures and I’m fairly sure it’s a very serious medical condition, and I just don’t feel comfortable writing about something like that.
I’m very sorry, but feel free to request something else!!

What happened to Errol Greene? Autopsy results reveal new info on inmate death

Eyewitness accounts of the death of Errol Greene are now confirmed by an autopsy report.

CBC News obtained a copy of the detailed report, dated Oct. 13, last week. It points to concerns around how the 26-year-old’s epileptic seizure was handled by corrections officers, and proves he was not administered his seizure-controlling medication while in custody at the Winnipeg Remand Centre.

Greene’s wife, Rochelle Pranteau, is still sifting through the pages of medical jargon trying to make sense of it all.

“I can’t imagine what he went through, and I don’t know what to tell our kids,” said Pranteau, who just gave birth to her and Errol’s fourth child, Errol Junior.

Concern over the circumstances of Greene’s death emerged early on from those who witnessed the medical emergency in person and over the phone. They questioned the emergency response to Greene’s seizure and the possibility that the Winnipeg Remand Centre denied access to valproic acid, the seizure-controlling medication for which Greene was prescribed.

Pranteau was speaking with Greene over the phone when he suffered the first of two seizures that eventually led to his death. At the time, Greene told Pranteau that he repeatedly asked for his medication but was ignored.

In the autopsy report, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner states that Greene had the first of two seizures at 1:52 p.m. on May 1. At that point he was handcuffed, shackled and held face down before being taken to his cell.

A second seizure occurred about 45 minutes later inside Greene’s cell, at which point an ambulance was called. It took another 15 minutes for the ambulance to arrive, at which point paramedics attempted to resuscitate Greene.

According to several witnesses, Greene was unresponsive.

“I heard audibly that the paramedics called his time of death at 15:05 on Sunday afternoon and that’s the only time stamp I heard,” said Stephen King, Greene’s cell-mate.

Once at the Health Sciences Centre Emergency Department, Greene was given several rounds of epinephrine, the drug used to resuscitate people. At that point, Greene regained a pulse, but the autopsy shows that his heart had stopped beating for 45 minutes prior to the epinephrine administration.

A subsequent scan of the brain showed severe damage and he remained comatose until his death at 8:27 p.m. that evening.

Cause of death

According to the autopsy report, the immediate cause of death is “acute hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy,” which simply stated means a sudden lack of oxygen to the brain. 

Greene was restrained during his seizure, and according to his autopsy report, physical restraint could have contributed to his death.

The use of extreme restraint was reported by inmates on the scene early on in a CBC News’ investigation.

“I watched the guards handcuff him, shackle him, throw him on his stomach. They held down his head with two hands and he was shaking forcefully,” said King during an interview with CBC News in May.

According to the autopsy report, Greene had “a sudden, witnessed seizure following which he began thrashing about and becoming violently aggressive, requiring him to be restrained. He was cuffed and shackled in the prone position until he calmed down and allowed to return to his cell. A short time later he had another seizure, at which time he was again restrained.”

Medication denied

Pranteau said her husband was denied medication while in custody, which could explain the low levels of valproic acid in Greene’s body. According to the pathologist’s section of Greene’s autopsy report, “toxicologic analysis of antemortem plasma taken prior to his death revealed a subtherapeutic level of valproic acid, which would have made him susceptible to having a seizure.”

Greene's concerns about medication would be the last words Pranteau would hear from her husband, but the conversation that day started on a much more positive note.

“I was telling him that I needed him more than ever for baby, and he was ready to change his life around for the better, for his family. And I can tell he was sincere and ready this time. But because of what happened I wasn’t able to see it,” said Pranteau.

Inquest pending

Pranteau wants an inquest into her husband’s death.

Manitoba Corrections refuses to comment on the Winnipeg Remand Centre’s response to Greene’s medical emergency and its failure to administer prescription medications. Manitoba Corrections would only confirm that the department completed an internal review of the circumstances leading up to the death of an inmate on May 1, 2016.

An inquest into Greene’s death is in the hands of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. The office confirmed with CBC News that the decision to call an inquest is pending.

Two other inmates have died at the Winnipeg Remand Centre in the past two weeks.

One died on Oct. 13; the other died Tuesday.

A protest is planned Wednesday outside the Winnipeg Remand Centre.

Another inmate died at the Winnipeg Remand Centre on Tuesday

Correction : Errol Greene died at 8:27 p.m., not 10:27 p.m., the time in an earlier version of this story.(Oct 26, 2016 10:17 AM)

ngl tho that absence seizure scene struck a chord with this epileptic over here

although I’d always come round from one having a fuck off headache and be far more confused (I’d likely have punched Jason for moving me before realising where I was)

still was a beautiful piece of cinematography and was nice to see epilepsy being represented as more than tonic clonics/grand mals
