Yes.. in a sense.. I have been revived a couple times now... I have seen some weird stuff... but the act of dying is not painful... its actually peaceful... its the coming back.. when all the pain.. emotions.. sounds.. and just general chaos hits you all at once... I am scared to die.. but kinda pissed off every time I make it...

Sean, I live alone also. I'm aware that I have stopped breathing in the past during a seizure. It is a scary thought.
Aside from seizures I also have heart problems and suspected sleep apnea.
I really don't have any solutions, sorry.

I know some do die with certain kinds of seizures.I do not however fear mine. They are Absence Seizures,and if I forget my Triggers, they can be bad. However, I now am driven to go shopping and do errands. The main road here is far too dangerous, so no longer walk outside. Many people have been killed at the Intersection here.

It is hard to explain I don't fear dying I fear dying alone. I know I'll go to a better place. But I fear being alone or not found.
