Could someone explain what this may actually mean?
For example, after my aura of a very distinctive smell - I'll open my eyes suddenly and be staring at the sky, ceiling, or wall (after having been standing, walking, or sitting straight up watching TV, etc.) and be completely confused, bewildered, and groggy minded as to what happened with loss of actual time between what I was doing and where I'm at in that moment - not knowing or remembering anything in between
as in recently I had 2 seizures over 2 days back to back.
1) I was sitting in my recliner talking to my daughter & neice about what to have for dinner. I had the "smell", then my daughter & neice were talking to me but they were at the end of a very long tunnel & I couldn't answer them (they said later that my eyes were closed & they thought I had fallen asleep sitting up).
Then I kinda opened my eyes and my niece was gone. I got panicky cause I didn't know where she was. My daughter said my sis came and picked her up. I never saw my sister. My sister later told me that she spoke to me, I only grunted never spoke, and she left.
Somewhere I lost time and I felt groggy, bewildered, drained, and sleepy for a while afterward.
2) I had the "smell", took a header face first towards the curbing in the parking lot at a local Wal Mart (my Dad's quick thinking saved me cause he apparently caught me in mid-fall). My dad said I never said a word, was looking straight ahead, took a few steps, and then just dropped.
While sitting on the curbing, I saw the other cars rolling through the parking lot but they weren't real in that they were wavy and weird looking and seemed to be close and far off at the same time. My Dad spoke to me but he too was at the end of a long tunnel for a moment, maybe 2.
After both of these, I kinda "woke up" in that no one was in a tunnel and nothing was waving back and forth but was left drained, tired, bewildered, groggy, and sleepy for quite a while afterward.
In fact, I had my Dad take me home the day of the parking lot incident. We never even entered the Wal Mart. I laid the seat back in the car and then went to bed as soon as I got home.
Pardon me if I may seem stupid about this but in all sincerity, when I read about altered consciousness or impaired awareness, I'm just not sure what it's talking about or if what I have is what this is.
