Today, I had RA training and we were doing mock situations. During one of these, I had a seizure. Everyone thought it was fake, until I started violently throwing up. FML

Atleast you were in good hands when they finally noticed

That's terrible, but they must have thought you were a great actor for a few seconds.

That's for sure!

Well, that sucks! Hope you're fine now!

I'm glad they seized the moment when it finally struck them.

Getting down voted means I'm doing something right, I think.

I hope they applied the training

You never know when the moment will seizure.

No. Just no.

"you never know when you'll be able to seize the moment" would have been better ( but still bad), bc yours kind of doesn't make sense to me.

Don't let the haters get you down, this was a quality pun

#31 it's when you get caught up in the moment.

Bad timing .. But already you had help at hand .. Hope ur feeling better :)

Seize the moment!

Not appropriate in this setting, but good try?

They really couldn't tell a fake seizure from a real one?

When you're expecting fake situations, I'd assume it would be more difficult.

Well it depends on the seizure. She could of had a Petite Mal seizure where you could literally look like your staring off into space and shake a little. It's very easy to miss. A Grand Mal seizure is very noticeable.

And it honestly wouldn't be a bad thing for them to act out, because what if a resident were to have a medical issue while they were on duty?

My younger brother had a seizure when we were about 9 years old. At the time, I thought he was throwing a temper tantrum because he didn't want to go to bed. In reality, his blood-sugar levels were extremely low (he's diabetic). My point is, sometimes you don't know the difference.

Sorry op I hope you're okay! Least you got help immediately

*almost immediately

Eek sorry to hear about that. I hope you're doing well now. Best of luck OP.
