Re: Keeping seizures away by keeping the mind busy
Stress is a known seizure trigger. That's true.
It's not a bad idea to focus on outside things and not think about seizures all the time- that's just a waste of time to focus on having seizures to the exclusion of other activities- yet at the same time, there are things people with seizures have to do and remember (meds, sleep, eating consistently) to avoid seizures.
One thing that helped me was getting away from other people if I felt auras, since being around others during seizures made things more stressful- if I could get away from others (preferably in a different room where nobody would bother me, yet where someone knew where I was), I could help myself calm down by knowing I wasn't where I'd be seen- it might help shorten the severity or duration of some seizures. But I couldn't depend on it to the exclusion of getting on the floor, and other things to guarantee my safety
