Be very supportive and be sure she is safe. Let her know you are there for her and that just because she has epilepsy doesn’t change your friendship. I have epilepsy for 40 years and did a good job of hiding it, not that I tried, just that I didn’t tell unless I had to. I main thing is to be there for her and learn as much as you can about epilepsy so you know a little about what she is going thru.
Learn First Aid. It makes me feel better if I know that the people I am with know what to do for seizures and seizure related injuries. It might help if she or anyone ever hurts themselves in a non-seizure related event.
