Starting during my separation and eventual divorce 12 years ago, I didn't know what they were I would "wake up" on the floor and think I'd fainted and basically spend the next 24hrs in bed. It was when I met and moved in with my current partner in 2007 I had a seizure and he asked why I'd never mentioned it in all this time!!!!
I have had a long struggle with my seizures lost 2 jobs and have been bullied out of another 3 now I'm too ill to work not just because of the epilepsy, it was only last year they found out my heart stops when I fit it is known as SUDEP and I had a pacemaker fitted.
Since then my seizures have become more violent and as I never get a warning they can happen anywhere I am frightened to leave the house on top of everything else.
Thanks for reading.
