Last Friday I had a seizure at my local grocery store. It was horrific. I hit my head, and it was very messy. It has been eight days, and I am still suffering from a concussion. I'm feeling pretty lost and alone, my friends are avoiding me, and my husband has been very mean and unsupportive. I went to a different grocery store a couple of days ago, and I'll just say it didn't go well. Even just a commercial for the store I was at when I had the seziure makes my gut churn. I am afraid this may be used against me. I don't trust my own body, or myself now. I always thought I would know if something was wrong. I didn't this time. I was smiling and happy just before I went down. It is so strange - I remember everything except of course when I was unconsicous. I am afraid to drive, even though my M.D. gave the ok to do so. When can I stop feeling scared and vulnerable? I really need someone who can relate. It seems that when I tell my friends and family these things they don't know what to say.View Thread
