For the past 4 days, I've been having the odd premonition-type feelings that I experience when I'm about to suffer a seizure (due to CNS lupus), however, I have never had this unusual feelings for such an extended period of time before, and it's beginning to worry me a little. I'm having repeated out-of-body experiences along with a really really strange warning aura, almost as if my sub-conscious is telling me something awful is going to happen soon. I've never had it last this long before, only usually a few hours at maximum, but it's getting to the point now where I'm unable to sleep because I'm so worried. I'm repeatedly telling my family, friends and partner to be careful when driving or whilst they're out and I'm beginning to get really REALLY paranoid. I've even increased my anti-seizure medication as a precautionary measure just in case the warning signs are directed at me. It's so difficult to ignore and it's keeping me on edge so much so that I'm unable to leave the house without getting extremely nervous. It's driving me insane!!!! I'm putting into practice all that my hypnotherapist has taught me about breathing and clearing my mind etc. and going to a place where there are no worries, but I cannot stop panicking no matter what I do. It almost reminds me of what we know as "animal instinct," i.e. like dogs can sense if a person is epileptic etc. I'm thinking perhaps it may be an idea to get a dog for such times as this, as I'm sure it would be able to reassure me and stop me worrying by way of their actions. It's so ridiculously uncomfortable, and causing me to burst into tears at random times of the day, I'm scared, and don't know what to do with myself I'm so lost... Is there anyone else who suffers the same extended auras? I'm in desperate need of reassurance here...
