Coping with seizures

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum. My daughter is 6 years old and she has been having seizures since she was 8 months old. She has tonic clonic seizures that resist emergency medication so every seizure results in an ambulance right and at least one night in the hospital.
Recently my husband and I have been discussing that we have never dealt with the emotional impact caused by the seizures on us. How do you cope and recharge after your child has a seizure?
