    YES! Thank you. I’ve never understood where this myth came from.

      Well, the first time we saw Jade having a tonic clonic, she sounded like she couldn’t breathe because of an obstruction that was rattling near the back of her throat. I can see exactly why people thought holding the seizing person’s tongue out of the way might be helpful, although actually swallowing it is still a bit crazy. Thank goodness I’d taken First Aid before and knew better than to stick something in there…
