First, yes, diet can affect seizures. She needs to get a first aid
book and read about seizures. They can be quite frightening to see,
but are not life-threatening in most instances. I assume her son is
in day care. She needs to make sure that whoever is taking care of
her child while she works understands seizures, too. She also needs
to sit down and talk to her son, and kids are a lot smarter than many
people recognize. She needs to ask him if he can tell when he is
about to have one. If so, she needs to see if he is willing to sit
down and just close his eyes and relax before it hits. If nothing
else, this will make him less likely to be injured from a
fall. That’s the big problem, injuries from falls are the main
problem with seizures. No, people do not swallow their tongues when
they have seizures. One boy on the school bus I rode had seizures,
and he had forgotten to take his medicine one morning and had a
seizure on the bus.
She should also go to her employment’s human resources person, not
just her supervisor, and discuss the matter with that
person. Employers are human, and they may have some program for the
employees in place that could help her out.
