My brother has epilepsy and has grand maulo seizures frequently. He asked me on the phone last night how he looks when he has one and what does he do. My throat closed up and I didn't know how to answer him. A seizure such as his are awful to watch. I said, "you know how someone falls when being shot or hit on the head on TV, they go linmp and just fall. Well you do that and sometimes shake all over like your cold." He said he always wondered how he looked. He then asked me if I thought a person mentally ill knows they are? I told him NO! What would you tell him? Oh, and he is not mentally ill but had a friend that was.
