Why are my mum and dad acting odd?

Whoever looks after you may get really worried when you first start having seizures. This is normal and probably pretty annoying. They may even want to sleep in your bedroom to make sure you are safe at night.

With luck, they will calm down when they get some more information about epilepsy. If you can’t get them to stop worrying, tell them to look at the parents’ section on this website. Or even better, if you live in the UK, get them to ring our Epilepsy Helpline freephone number. It’s 0808 800 5050. We will try our best to help them.
