MY only son was diagonosed with epilisy at the age of thirteen. He had Grand Ma seizures. The last seizure he had was in the bathroom. The door opened inward and he fell against the door. Because of this we could not get the door open. The fire department came and had to remove the fixed window outside in able to get in. By the time all of this was said and done, they never got a life sign. If they could have revived him, he probably would have had brain damage. For goodness sake if you have someone in your home with a disability, change your bathroom door to open out, so you can get in if you need to. Christina

  • Hi Christina. first of all, i'm very sorry about your son. I'm the fiance' of 'had_enuf' who also is an epileptic. Although she's 21 and i'm sure its different in some form for adults the 'near misses' we've had are always scary. i 'catch' her in some horrible situations, and i thankyou for being brave enough to voice such an important message such as changing doors and things, funnily one of the things we have not yet rectified. all the best christina
