Bev's Experience

Experience description:   

I stopped breathing in the middle of the night....I was sleeping in my sisters bed and she woke up to find me blue.  She woke the rest of the family.  My other sister gave me CPR and ambulance, fire, police were called.  I was taken to sick kids hospital and given tests....lumbar puncture, blood work....It was determined that I had epilepsy and was put on medication.  For years I continued to have what they called psychomotor epilepsy.  Each "seizure" I would feel myself floating over my body.....very strange sensation that I have trouble even describing now.  My seizures stopped after becoming pregnant with my second child at age 27.  I feel at this point that I could make myself have an experience as I did when I was a child....but I'm too afraid to try it.
