Leaving Reality

I developed epilepsy from a head injury

I got caught underneath a young horse that I was looking to buy and train. The horse panicked after so kids came running out of a bush carrying shovels. I dont ever blame the horse, he was just 3 years old.

My seizures scare me; they create terrifying terrors I cant explain, its like being taken away from reality and put in another universe. Its scary to have a seizure, and wake up alone in my apartment.

I had my first seizure while at school in the classroom...I was left on the floor, nobody knew what to do, not even the teacher.

I know what that is like people just don't have enough Education to help someone when they have a seizure.

That sounds horrifying! I'm so sorry you have to go through that FastLane. I recently suffered a head injury and I have really terrifying nightmares ever since. I also feel like I lost who I was. It was a month ago and I'm still not sure If ill ever be who I used to be. My personality has changed since and no one seems to notice but myself.

Near-death experiences completely change a person's perspective on life.

Indeed.

I developed my epilepsy from a brain injury as well. I was 10 when I was hit by a car on a bicycle. Even though I made a full recovery, I developed epilepsy a year after that and it forever changed my life.

Its horrible. After I have a seizure there are always people to make fun of me. Worse was that after the first one, every single student and teacher knew about it. I had teachers I didnt even know asking me questions about it. Talk about awkward!

i no what you mean just got back home from the hospital after a bad seizuer if a have one around other people they freek out.
