When it was diagnosed with epilepsy I was put on Phenobarbitone and Phenatoin and walked about like a zombie for several months even though I have had only had two fits that I am aware of, and only whilst asleep. So I may have had others before I got married, but without biting my tongue.
I had to take six months off work until they would let me back into the factory. Even then, I could not work on my machine but had to work with hand tools for my own, and others safety. Then I could only work on my machine when they had made certain rules to keep me safe [and to cover their own backs].
