Autism & Seizures

Last week I missed my therapy session because I wasn’t feeling well and ended up having 4 seizures. My mom called 911 and I was taken to the hospital for observation and then was discharged.

The next day I felt my whole body aching and I was so weak, which is normal after having that many seizures. It’s very unfortunate because I was on a good streak where I was very productive for about 3 days in a row and then those seizures had me down for a day. Another thing I wanted to bring up is that I was also semi verbal after those seizures and my tolerance for sensory input went down drastically. It really sucked.

It is very common for autistic people to also have a seizure disorder but not all autistic people do. Although I don’t thunk my seizures are linked to my autism. I was born autistic but I didn’t start having seizures until I was 14 years old. I went through a lot of trauma and abuse as a child so I think that’s what started the seizures but I can’t really know for sure.

Hopefully next week I can post a more uplifting and positive blog for y’all to read but I figured I should let y’all know what’s been going on. I don’t want to break my streak of posting weekly.
