During the NAMI Florida State Conference 2019, my friend Vikki experienced some Psychogenic Nonepileptic Seizures. They are kinda scary to watch but are ultimately harmless. The biggest problem, from Vikki’s point of view, is when people freak out about them and call the paramedics. Several times she has had to go to the hospital to prove that she was fine. That can be a big pain when you are in the middle of doing something else!
Interestingly enough, I recently met someone else who had PNSs as well. It is a rare condition, but I’ve been fortunate to know two people with it! Knowing Vikki, I was sure not to overreact to the seizures and respond in a calm, rational way.
Hopefully Vikki’s character will show up again in OML. I really enjoy drawing her!
