Living with EpilepsyI have grand mal seizures, about one a year. My first one was at age 14, and it just came on with no warning. I had never had one before. I saw "floaters" come across my vision, except they didnt go away. They spread across my vision and then everything went black. For the 5 seconds I had to register that anything was happening, the only thing I could think was that I was dying. My sister, who was in the room with me, ran to get my mom and grandmother, who called 911. I awake about an hour or so later (so I was told) on the floor with a paramedic peering down at me. My grandmother told me that I had already been awake and walking around and talking. The first memory I have after that seizure was waking up to the paramedic looking at me. Nothing before that. I underwent a whole bunch of tests, and the doctors cant figure out what brings them on. The best they can guess is stress. Mercifully, my husband understands and knows what to do if one strikes. Hes already been through 4 with me.
