At my worst, during 1st marriage's break up, I was having 2 or 3 seizures a day and was completely lethargic. THAT is my fear... that I end up in that type of state when my family needs me most. I've only be in staticus once and it was pretty bad. My wife found chilli burning on the oven, candles lit, house spotlessly clean, and Metallica blasting on the stereo. She found me face down on my bed with snowboard boots on and no shirt. Right now, I only have problems when I'm stressed out to the point I can't sleep well. Days following this I end up having auras but no real seizures for about 3.5 years. It's not worth it to me to go off my meds just to see, but I often fantasize about being med-free.
So, in theory, I was getting ready for a romantic evening with her when I started cleaning (it's kind of an aura for me)... and decided that CHILI was the epitomy of romantic cuisine and that Metallica would set the mood. LOL... what a mess. My only memory was coming to in the ambulance briefly and almost punching the EMT before they restrained me.
Since posting this morning, I was thinking that if you had enough people together there'd have to be some level of full disclosure going on for people with chronic medical conditions. But, yeah, we're pretty fucked. I don't see society falling into the Roman era standard of epileptics being "favored by the gods" like Julius Cesar. Poor me... guess I'll have to find some trade skills that would upgrade me from an F6 or F5 (WWZ civillian rating for how useful your skill set is to society in PAW).
