Molly's Tale

Molly's Tale

Molly is 11 years old and has epilepsy. She lives with her family and goes to the local primary school and like the other kids she likes to play with her family and friends.

Because of epilepsy she occasionally has what are called seizures, and our story tells us more about her epilepsy and how doctors helped her to control her seizures.

Advice given to Molly's friends and family

If Molly has a seizure:
1. Keep calm — Molly is in no pain and will soon get better.
2. Make sure that she's in a safe place.
3. If possible move her head to one side.
4. When she has recovered, allow her to rest for a while.
5. Bring her home.
6. Never force anything in her mouth during a seizure.

It is thought that at least one person in every 103 has epilepsy. This means that in Britain alone there are at least 150,000 children with epilepsy.
