Have you ever?


I remember quite a few years ago, I was in a car accident and the stress or something caused me to have a partial seizure. So the seizure didn't cause the accident. The officer asked me the equivalent of "are you alright?" I replied with "I'm having a seizure" which freaked out his ignorant mind. I don't remember much else. Anything similar happen to you? Do you think I probably shouldn't have told him? We had car insurance issues maybe from what I said and maybe not.

To be clear, the seizure did NOT cause the accident.

i have had seizures after events, or the classic just let me go sit down and have a seizure.

I have been in bike wrecks and and after after getting all my stuff found somewhere to sit down and have a seizure. or this lady once had a seizure hit her head, i got her into recovery, got someone to call 911 people standing around like sheep aggravates the shit out of me. once they were all organized. i went out side and had my own seizure.
stuff like that has happened to me. mostly a matter of staying calm as long as needed then once i was no longer needed and i could fall apart i could die in peace
