what to do when someone has a seizure.

One way of helping yourself when you have seizures is to carry an ID card or wear ID jewellery.  

You can get these from:  Epilepsy Action, Medic Alert and Mybugle.

You should be able to find something that suits your needs and style.  Some of you may also have been issued with one by the Sheffield Hospitals Epilepsy service.

Paramedics and first-aiders are trained to look for these.  They will help them understand your epilepsy and so ensure that you get the best care.

However, do please ensure that the information about you they contain is up to date - it could save your life!

Please note that any donation given through this link will go to Epilepsy Action central funds unless you state it is to be given to the branch.
