    Seizure Background
    Was hit with a Grand Mal "spiritual awakening". Had no idea it was a seizure at the time, and thought I was transcending to another dimension/afterlife.

    It made me delusional. That got worse over about 9 months time. I checked into emergency several times and eventually they held me at the psyche ward. Was diagnosed bipolar, went on anti-psychotics and mood stabilizers.

    About 8-9 months later I felt great, went off all meds for about 5 months. Then I was hit with epileptic activity which now occurs regularly throughout the day (although very mild) without medication, and bothers me most while falling asleep. I have been this way since Sept 2014.

    I do not lose consciousness or muscle control, rather I vibrate (it's like shaking without moving), however I do suspect with each significant attack that there is some mild cognitive impairment which temporarily follows me around for a few days or a week or so. I am currently sectioned off into the mental illness camp and my epileptic activity has been said by some doctors that it is "all in my head", whatever that is supposed to mean.

    I respond to some meds, and not others, and I am slowly but surely learning all my food sensitivities, and logging all my progresses and so on.
