STARS Patient Information

Looking back I now understand how a rugby injury and an uncomfortable work chair were likely triggers for the story I’m writing now.
Right or wrong a diagnosis defines a person. As that person or patient – I have identified myself as my diagnosis for 20 years. 
If I think back my first loss of consciousness was in 1983 when my son was 9 months old, he is now 28 years old!
My story is one of misdiagnosis. I was properly diagnosed in 2004 at the age of 24.
When I was little I was diagnosed with epilepsy and lots of things would trigger a fit, like being sick.
After spending the day relaxing in the July sun I headed off to work. After a couple of hours, I suffered my first convulsion.
