>Hi Elizabeth.

I'm glad your SO came home. What would have happened if he didn't come home, (or you didn't have a SO?) Would you have come to in the same way, just having no one to tell you what happened?

Anyway, my friend had strange seizures that they never did track down (but she had been abused, and that is not uncommon to have brain changes). And they put her on some anti-seizure med and she stopped having them. She didn't go completely out during her's, but she'd be driving and everything would become totally distorted and she'd have to pull over, and somehow or other they determined she was having seizures. Driving is sort of hypnotic, so maybe the threshold was lowered. She's the same friend with DID, who had different EEGs depending on who was "out", but these episodes were not related to alters taking over. And having depression for a long time can also create strange brain changes or having brain abnormalities can create depression, as you well know.

I've been of no help (didn't try, cause it's not anything I know about), but I'm glad that you had support from your family and SO, and you don't sound as scared as perhaps you were when you first went to the hospital.

Take care,
Shelli
