I had by far my worse PNES episode today. I was in health class, and apparently we where watching something about Alcoholism but I have very little memory of it, and my school aid told me that was what happened. I think I was having a seizure at my desk but no one noticed. It ended around 10 minutes before the bell rang and everything was very disoriented I walked back to my IEP class and all I can remember is branching myself on the table and then flashing lights, and then boom I collapsed. Thankfully I missed the table so I didn't hit my head. But I feel quite hard onto the floor. It just is scary because this is the first time I've collapsed from a seizure. And this opens the door for so many possibilities. What happens if this happens again? What if I'm never the same? What if I can't work? it's terrifying.
Psychogenic non epileptic seizure
You should definitely talk to your doctors about it.
So I’ve had this happen at work and school so I totally understand! Luckily I had really understanding staff and coworkers. I did have to go months without working because my job was too nervous for me to work but I worked on managing my stress and anxiety and I haven’t had one in 2 months! It does get better!
