S/W/M seeking C/T/W/S for R/M. As in:
Seriously worried Mom seeking cool teen with seizures for role model.
I just spent the last hour googling things like "seizure+role model" and "support+kids+seizures" and "cool+teen+epilepsy" and "help me my son cries every time he has a seizure and wets his pants".
I don't even know what I'm looking for. A video of a cool, confident-looking kid talking about how he has seizures and wets his pants and how it's ok? An educational cartoon showing a kid having a seizure and everyone treating him like it's not a big deal? Anything! I just need something to convince L that it's ok and he's not alone.
He's not an anxious child in general. And he's not the self-pity type (after all he's not even three yet- self-pity is kind of advanced.) But yesterday he had a seizure and afterward he just cried and cried. He was just sad and it sucked.
I want him to have someone to look up to, who can make him see that it's a bummer, but it's not really so bad.
