The first episode.


Picking berries in the summer sun

Gathering many, it was great fun

Suddenly the world collapsed before me

As I collapsed frothing and my tongue bitten

the grass became my bed and my bladder flowed

The minutes passed no one there, unseen from the road.

My wife discovered me as she brought clothes to the line

Made sure I was safe and phoned NHS Direct and not 999

Admitted to hospital MRI a scan to peruse

No longer to drive the licence to loose.

So diagnosed with Epilepsy at the age of 62

May that be my luck, I'd not wish for you

But many who read this will have a dejas vu

Join the Epilepsy Club I welcome you.

Sorry. Glad your wife was there to help you. Sometimes we just don't realize how lucky we are.

No, I do not wish to join. I'm already a member of the quadriplegic club.

Do you recall if you ever had a any injury head injury? I've heard that that can cause epilepsy at any time. It must be terrible to have bit your tongue and not know it. It must also be terrible to lose your license. I had to quit driving from 1995 to 1998. There's a certain sense of loss of freedom that comes without being allowed to drive.

I wish you well and out of the club. Stem cells are right around the corner.

Ron
