    Hi Lydia

    I'm not too sure what to say apart from maybe go to your GP again. I'm in the exact same position as you where nobody takes me seriously.

    I would suggest that you stop driving for a while until you get it sorted.

    Have an nice evening.

      Hello

      With work, what I got to do is I went to the GP and got them to write a letter explaining the situation and any requirements. Of course with the seizures, it's important that you don't work alone. Also I would advice that you stop driving.

      Really hope you get it sorted.

    Dear Lydia,

       You sound like you had a adnormal function going on inside your brain. Sounds like it was very serious stuff. Going to a doctor about it is wise, medical advice. I know the feeling when you are told it is not epileptic and they say it is NEAD. I'm happy it is not epileptic with me because the meds are terrible to be on. The doctors first put me on a few anti-epileptic drugs, nasty. I deal with my seizure and just get on with my life. What happen to you sounds like it could be very dangerous. Your not selfish at all to not go to see a doctor about what happen. It's your only body, take care of it the best that you can. I'm here for you-Mary
