Yesterday when I coming home from market, I have seen a person who fell on road and suffering with epilepsy. Immediately people have surrounded him and started putting keys in his palm, They have lifted him up from road and kept on pavement and started rubbing his feet. I was giving him water to drink, after few minutes he became normal but very nervous. By that incident I was very much worried that if a person with epilepsy is alone when he is attacked then what might be his condition? It may be life threatening. Have you come across such incidents.

But I doubt people that suffer like that want a babysitter 24/7. They also don't want to be confined to their homes. They want to be treated like "regular" people. Maybe a service dog is the answer?

Only if their seizures are uncontrolled. Most people with seizures take medication which controls them well and they are able to lead quite normal lives.

@Lolaze So having a seizure out in public and being taken advantage of at the same time, would be pretty rare? Most people are helpful during those times.

I saw a similar thing happen once. A man was just walking down the road when he suddenly fell into the street. He'd had a seizure. Luckily he fell right in front of a fire house and I ran there with another lady while some other people stopped traffic so he didn't get run over. He ended up being okay.

I haven't came across an incident like that. Shouldn't they be accompanied whenever they are out?
