supportive partner

i have complex partial and simple partial seizures and having someone to support you and take care of you is so crucial. i just had two seizures about 60 mins ago, i was sitting on the couch and a very flashy scene in the movie we were watching triggered me. she told me i was picking at my shirt and drooled a bit for a minute or so. i felt like i was fidgeting too, if that makes sense. i went into another one a little after, not really sure what triggered that. it's common for me to have a few close together. she told me i held my arm out and rubbed my fingers together, some chewing. she is very supportive, she's still holding my hand. she has helped me through violent seizures and always keeps me safe. i am not scared to seize when she's around. very comforting.
