15 minute grand maul seizure

I had a 15 minute grand maul seizure and went into status epilepticus in front of my 9 year old daughter. Very scary. It was my first seizure that lasted that long.


So sorry to hear that - those

So sorry to hear that - those are very frightening to witness.  Hope you are feeling a little better.  I've seen my son have a few that lasted a long time -- scared me to death!
