Hello! My daughter (9) was diagnosed with absence seizures this week and starts meds today. All seems pretty straightforward so far and she's fairly ok with it. The fact that she had a truly lovely paed look after her helped!
Hoping to connect with other parents looking after young people with absences to get advice about how protective to be. DD is so keen to be independent and do things like go to the shops on her own and walk to school by herself but even if seizures are mostly controlled, I'm not sure I can let her out of my sight let alone cross roads on her own
Struggling to find a balance in my head between letting her have freedom and keeping her safe .
