    Default Support System Advice?

    Hey there!

    I'm brand new here, and I tried searching through the archives but couldn't find quite what I was looking for. My boyfriend has complex partial seizures. Usually he gets an aura, vision changes, dizziness, and a whole slew of other symptoms. He's currently trying to figure out what meds work best for him. A lot of times, in the middle of a seizure, he just goes quiet and curls up, and I'm struggling to find a way to support him without overwhelming his senses. He's not sure what will necessarily help him in those times, and has a hard time communicating in those moments what he needs/feels.

    When you're going through a seizure, what do you wish others would do for you? I read a bit here about "just let them ride it out," but I was wondering if there was more variation on that? Do you want comfort? Somebody speaking to you? Somebody to just not make it a big deal? What are your thoughts when you're going through a seizure (those of you that don't "black out,")? What are your thoughts/feelings/needs after you come to?
