I had a seizure; driving.

*This was previously in a private journal; I’m posting here for reference.

I woke up in the ambulance Tuesday  [9/11/07] evening around 6ish, I know I was headed to Iowa City, and just at Davis Avenue on Hwy. 6 I had a seizure, went into the other lane of traffic – luckily no one was coming, I wrecked my new car. I know both air bags deployed – the body of the car doesn’t look too bad; but we think my face hit the steering wheel before the airbags went off.   We are fairly certain that the seizure happened before or just as I was pulling out of the driveway. I was talking to Shawn on the phone and she knew something happened. I don’t remember much more than pulling out of the driveway.

I was kept overnight with a neck brace on; they didn’t let me out til close to 1:30/2pm this afternoon. My neck and whole body is really sore today, I’m full of bruises and still unaware of what happened.

I have lost my license for 6 months; and they have upped my epilepsy medicine some.

On the way home this afternoon, Deb (my stepmom and I) found my cell phone so I’ve got it back now, but I’m sure I’ll be resting most of the night.

As of now, no medicine change. I still have my October meeting with my regular neurologist.
