HOW TO DEAL WITH SEIZURES, ASTHMA ATTACKS, AND PANIC/ANXIETY ATTACKS.
Please, share this! it could help someone help their friend.
For seizures you have to lay them on their side, if they are laying face up they WILL choke (gravity) (sometimes you are unable to lay them on their side)
Everyone needs to read this!! Anxiety attacks are the scariest thing I’ve ever experienced, it feels like you are about to die. I’ve cut myself, bitten through the skin on my arms, as if the pain will escape from the wound. My friends and family don’t know what to do and that only makes it worse! It is so much more terrifying if the people around you are scared too. hearing my mother say “you’re scaring me” made it feel even worse and only intensified the attack. NEVER TELL THE PERSON SUFFERING THAT YOU ARE SCARED, THAT IS THE LAST THING WE NEED TO HEAR!! We need someone to be strong for us because we don’t feel strong ourselves. We are vulnerable and need someone to depend on.
First: Welcome to the fandom! Or as we like to say here on the Doctor Who Tumblr, congrats on being #NewToWho!
Second: Saying goodbye to Rose is really hard, but thankfully there’s an entire community of Whovians on Tumblr who have been through exactly this (say hi to crazyshort17, Whovians!)
Goodbyes are one of the more difficult things in life. There are all kinds of goodbyes: the goodbyes that are really ‘I’ll see you soon’s; the goodbyes when we know we won’t ever see the person again and the ones that aren’t really goodbye at all.
When we here at the Doctor Who Tumblr have to say goodbye, we like to remind ourselves to also say, “We’re really glad that we got to know you.”
The best thing about being a Whovian is that in those times when we have to do difficult things like say goodbye, we can also appreciate that there are so many people left to say hello to! There are thousands of other Doctor Who fans who would love to talk to you about what you’re processing at the moment.
