It’s Incredibly frustrating when you hear people say “I know how you feel” when first of all it’s physically impossible to know how i feel and secondly when the person who says that to me has no experience of epilepsy.
After everything i’ve dealt with in my life, i know and i understand people say that as a awkward , response and they use in a way use it to comfort you in a conversation. I understand they’re only trying to help but they get nowhere. There was someone who said to me “Oh i get migraines” they tried to compare it to them.
So i asked do you even know what a seizure or absense even feels like? He responded no i don’t , i was like exactly. So when i try to explain how much it takes it out of me, he doesn’t actually understand and when i end up falling asleep he said get up you can’t be falling asleep. So i believe don’t try and judge someone for the effects of seizures if you don’t understand the effects of them.
