Recently I was getting the bus home early from work, I was feeling lightheaded, I saw something in my right eye and I could sense a seizure coming on.
I told my friend what was happening and she rang my mam. As the seizure progressed my head turned to the right and I couldn’t move it, that's when I began to feel my body shake, my vision blurred and my heart was beating uncontrollably.
I knew I was about to go unconscious, and so feeling scared I screamed for help on the bus.
