New diagnosis - advice wanted please.
Hello, in the last few days I have been diagnosed with absent epilepsy, I am still coming to terms with my new condition and trying to get used to my medication. My best friend has asked me, if I am with her and we’re near a road when I have an episode is she allowed to move me if she thinks I am unsafe? I understand that with some medical conditions there are certain things you can or cannot do, therefore I wanted to see what everyone says. Is it down to my discretion or are there specific things my family and friends can or cannot do if I have an episode?
