It might seem like a 2-1/2 year old wouldn't care. But he's been potty-trained for well over a year*. He's no more likely to have an accident than I am, so it takes him by surprise every time. And since he is so young, it's harder for him, because he doesn't just know as a matter of course that people with seizures lose control of their bladders sometimes, the way an adult would. We reassure him every time that he's had a seizure and it isn't his fault, but he just doesn't understand.
L's had a few seizures in public, but we've always been there. I think, sometimes, about him having them at school one day. Who will help him? Kids can be accepting and amazing, sometimes, and maybe his class will be. But it only takes one mean kid to start laughing at L for wetting himself to flip the balance. I can't stand to think of him being the outcast because of something he can't control.
So, please tell me an inspiring story about how you knew a cool kid with epilepsy or how the prom king had seizures. Something. Anything about kids being better than I'm thinking they're going to be toward someone who is a little different.
*I wish I could take credit for it, but I didn't do a thing. He has that determination that comes from being a little brother. He literally trained himself.
P.S. He didn't have any seizures today. Just thinking.
