I'm back!! I don't know if you know what happened. I was on my way to my mom's Saturday. I was driving. I remember having a funny feeling (which I've had before but didn't think anything of it) Then I woke up with police, paramedics around me. Apparently I had a seizure while driving. I always drive in the far right hand lane. So, I was driving, had a seizure, blacked out, drove up a hill on the side of the highway, came down and crashed into a guard rail. When I came to all these men were around me in the car. I don't remember much but they got me out of the car, strapped me to a gurney and put me in an ambulance. I do remember asking them why are they doing this to me. The paramedic kept saying I'm going to be ok, don't get worked up.I was so confused, didn't understand anything going on. Some questions I could answer, some I didn't know what they were talking about. So I stayed 2 nights in the hospital. I now have to take seizure medicine and I can't drive for 6 MONTHS!!!! I go back to work next Monday.
Oh, and I totaled my car. But the main thing is I didn't hurt anybody. If I would have I know I could not live with that.
The worst of it is I have a bad burn on my shoulder from the seat belt.
I would like to find the paramedics that helped me and thank them and apologize for being so difficult. Some people in my family says I don't have to do that but I want too.
Hope everyone has a great day and be careful!!!!! Big hugs to you all!!!
