Oh my god...you said "seizure" in front of someone with epilepsy? You're a terrible person! You should be beaten for that! Oh wait, that's insensitive to people who have been beaten. My apologies. I meant to say that you suck! No, that's insensitive to people who can't afford a vacuum. What I meant was, how could you be so stupid? Wait wait, that's insensitive to stupid people... See where I'm going with this, people? If you weren't so goddamned sensitive about every little t

I dunno, I don't think that's really offensive, he must've known you weren't being malicious or anything. I have a heart condition and if someone told me they were having a heart attck in a similar sentence I wouldn't care, I doubt I'd even really register it as possibly offensive. Some phrases are, like saying your phone is 'being a spaz', but I don't think what OP said is anything bad. It's not derogatory.

Yup. Epilepsy is a fucking bitch. I'm sure that everyone would enjoy taking 4,000mgs of medicine every fucking day of their life. No, fail. Epilepsy sucks.

They probably were being careful! I know my brain will troll me sometimes and say shit I'm not supposes to say because I'm constantly thinking about not saying it.

It sounds like you told your problems to the only dude that will actually understand what's going on. Good show!

OP should be more careful? It was a mistake. I have a friend who's an epileptic as well and also "typppzz like diz." Once when we were texting I accidentally wrote "it looks like your keyboards having a seizure." Thankfully, she dismissed it, but c'mon, everyone's caught up in their own problems these days to remember others & their problems :P

The "hahah" was sarcasm. I just saved you from stupid people who don't understand what is sarcastic and what is not!

I've pretty much been using sarcastic replies ever since I started commenting but people really need to calm down here

OP that's an offensive saying to some people. Be careful about what you say in public, or else it could bite you in the butt like it did here.

I guess I don't get what is offensive since there was meanness meant behind it. I'm bipolar and OCD and don't get offended when people do the I'm OCD or bipolar jokes because of something that just happened. And there is still more of a stigma with mental illness then there is epilepsy. People need to stop being so thin skinned about certain things.

Thank you 38! The only time I feel someone should get offended in a situation like that is when the other person is being serious.

Mmm, I don't know. Saying 'seizure' around someone with epilepsy is like saying 'retarded' around someone with down syndrome.. Or you could say 'gay' and someone could be homosexual. Serious or not, it can still be offensive.

Hmmm...I'm epileptic and that wouldn't even come close to offending me or any of my epileptic friends.

57- I'm with you, I have epilepsy too and I have never met another epileptic that would get offended over something like that.

49 then using that train of thought when a normie gets hyper and claims they are manic, shouldn't I be offended? Of if they wash their hands and say I'm being OCD? I've been in both situations many times. Neither have offended me. These conditions, all that you listed, the ones I did are what people have, not who they are. It doesn't change the core of the person and shouldn't define them. And for the record I have a homosexual friend who often calls things gay. Slang can be stupid and sometimes

I agree, but if it's not offensive to you, then you shouldn't say anything because the odds are that it's not offensive to the people you are speaking for.

#62. I agree that saying something like OCD or seizure wouldn't be offending. However, when someone says "that is retarded/gay", it can be offending. Saying seizure or OCD isn't as bad. When saying your retarded, you are tyrying to insult someone by claiming them to be something that many people are, as well as homosexuality. When saying seizure, your are not insulting anything, you are simply describing an action, as well as OCD.

I also have epilespy and would have found that funny...... If you cant laugh at urself for haveing epilespy then it just bothers you and thats no fun

Yeah I`m sorry but saying 'I`m offended by that' means nothing if there was no intent. It just means that you need to get over yourself. I'm offended by the X-factor but I dont see anyone rallying around to get it off the air. I`m massively offended by the music of U2, Nickleback, Shinedown and Rebecca Black but do you see anyone trying to get it banned? Nope. So basically put, if you are so sensetive to be offended by little things like what the OP said, you shouldnt be out of doors. Stay in wi

People not to stop being so damn sensitive. It's a figure a speech that being used JOKINGLY. It's not like you wish a seizure upon your boss and then found out he has epilepsy. That woulda been bad

I have (mild) OCD but I do not mind people calling their things or friends OCD. The world would be a better place if people were not so sensitive.

My sister has it too, but she has said herself to my mom who was flipping out "don't have a seizure over it". I understand what you mean though.

This is the same situation as saying something is "retarded," and then the person has a relative/friend/is retarded and you're screwed.

One of my friends says "That's so retarded" all the time. I have a mentally and physically handicapped aunt and have told him this. :/
