One of my symptoms is that if I sit down I suddenly shut down during the day, I can be just siting there, on a laptop, holding a cup of tea or even TV remote control and I am gone.
Recently went through several Medico Legal examinations and when I mentioned this 2 queried whether I should be driving, when I mentioned this to the third he said I should be fine to drive. My GP won't get a copy of these reports so I arranged an appointment to discuss it with him and have one last try to get a diagnosis of why I shut down.
So yet again explained my symptoms to the GP and immediately said I must stop driving immediately as even if there is a remote risk I fall asleep there is a risk. Which is fine. However, it is the next bit where my jaw nearly hit the floor - his suggestion was to use public transport instead !!!! So without even reading my notes he has just been told by me that I fall asleep randomly when sitting down, have cognitive and planning issues and told him I have a motability car because I can't walk far and I am down for even more knee surgery this week - which he wrote the letters for.
His response you will have to be accompanied when you go out or swap your car for a disability scooter!
Maybe that's why I have a BI been banging my head on the wall for too long
