3rd grade seizures

  Have you ever had a seizure before? I sure have. It was scary. That little experience I’ll NEVER forget. Here’s my story.

The year was 2004. I was in 3rd grade, a student at Arrowwood Elementary; age 8.It seemed like an ordinary school day at first. Ms. Ross, the secretary, at her desk, me at lunch and recess, and my mom doing whatever she was doing. After lunch I have gym. As usual I completely forgot to go to the office to take my inhaler. Luckily, Ms. Ross came and got me to take me to the office.

When Ms. Ross gave me my inhaler, I took my 1st puff. As I counted to 10 I started getting dizzy, so I sat down. I reached 10 so I blew out. Then, the next thing I knew, I was lying face down on the floor. I had my 1st seizure. The secretary helped me back into the chair and called my mom. When she got there I sat on her lap.

She talked to Ms. Ross and I took the other puff. After I blew out, my head went back, eyes closed, and my hands shaking violently. That was the 2nd and last seizure. After that I went to the hospital. We had to stay there for 8HOURS!! Anyway, I had 2 seizures total. Plus, a REALY nasty scab on my left cheek bone from the first seizure.

Well, at least I don’t have a scar (any more)! After that I didn’t take my inhaler. Unless I needed it though, then I took it. Now I’m as healthy as a horse. No more seizures!

Hiya... I'm not asthmatic so I've never had any respiratory problems... I was just wondering why you got the seizure after breathing in the inhaler? Was it because you took it too late or what?

Thanks!
