I get a really strong aura before having a seizure, so I'll pull off the road before one occurs.

I live in the state of
Missouri & the last
Seizure I had was a
Grand Mal & I didn't have "any warning!"
I had stopped driving because I
feel that if I hit or
killed someone, I'd
never forgive myself. I worked at
a Veterans Home for 30yrs & I've seen men that were in 'bad mental or physical
condition.' I worked
in Physical Therapy, as an Aide II.

I don't drive, but I
walk a lot!
What helps me is
I can walk almost
anywhere in town!

As I do not have a car now, I do not drive. But I am saving up for a car so I can drive again. I do miss driving. Buses do not go everywhere I want to go and also the buses are so slow in coming.
