Epilepsy - the up sides

Tried to share my story, but "sorry invalid content" was all I could get from it.

I'll share those upsides when I figure out how to enter a valid content.

Good morning - if anyone is

Good morning - if anyone is about. Trying again to post and will keep it short. Been having seizures for a few years but just recently diagnosed due to an auto accident. Problem is - I love it - both the seizures and medication - but I can't find anyone else that does. There must be someone around who would like to discuss the up sides. So far dejavu, visions, and ecstasy make up my seizures - of course I don't remember the unconscious parts, but I awaken feeling like I just had a brain massage from God. After awakening from my last event a Doctor and medical staff were on hand by sheer luck. Post accident pulse was 60 and I was filled with joy. Clearly not natural.I don't wanna bring down people who actually do suffer from this disease- most people, but I would love to chat with people who are lucky enough to have such powerful and positive experiences. It's like there is a golden key just out of reach....
