My husband has had non epileptic seizures since we got married Feb 2018. They’re stress and sleep related, and in a good week he has two, bad weeks they’re daily or more. Most recent development is that saliva makes his breathing difficult.
Our relationship is mostly holding up. I feel trapped and helpless though, because I feel the need to be there through a seizure in case he has trouble breathing and suffocates. Not only that, but my leaving to go to work adds to his stress and makes the seizures worse. I’ve been lucky that my jobs are basically understanding, but I’m at my wits end. He misses work due to seizures, and so do I- how are we supposed to live?
Is there a nurse branch that will sit with someone having a seizure, to make sure they’re okay and allow the spouse to get to work with relatively little panic?
Please say yes.
