Trying to understand seizures

Hello @santpsha
When I was able to reverse my Deja vu seizure most which were in my sleep, I would look in the other direction. I would think of a situation there where I would not want to have a seizure. Sometimes it helped and sometimes it did not.
During the short time I had daytime auras which I was afraid would lead to seizures I would do the same things, That helped. But out of fear, like being on the bus, I got off the bus because I did nt want anyone to see me have a seizure. I also threw myself on the ground one day out of fear that I was going to have a seizure.

My seizures have changed now that I have gotten older my seizures have changed, I now have spells of apnea/ I gasp when I have a seizure. Seizures are under much better control and cannot do this.

Hi @lsittll
Happy to know that your seizures are much better under control nowadays!!!!
Exactly, just looking in a different direction would sometimes help to reverse a seizure. Thanks for sharing it!!!! Since 2020, I also use a rescue spray (CBD +THC) to reverse my seizures. Works pretty well.
I agree with @jakedduck1, we should not be ashamed by our seizures. I know it is easier to say than to experience it. It is something I have been working on.
Coming back to the book "Brave New Medicine", yesterday I have watched a great interview with Dr. Cynthia Li about her healing journey. It is so inspiring! As I can not copy and paste the link, for those interested look for "How a Doctor Cured Her Autoimmune Disease with Functional Medicine" in the YouTube, What would medicine look like if doctors had experienced themselves a chronic disease?
A great weekend to all of you!
