Yesterday I went out to the cinema to see the new James Bond film. I was really excited, yet filled with nerves. The reason for the nerves was that back in August I was diagnosed with Non Epileptic Attack Disorder, my seizures seemed to be triggered by extreme pain, lights being shone directly in to my eyes and flashing lights. Despite the fact that I have not had a seizure in over 5 weeks, I was still worried, after all with the amount of explosions that there are in James Bond films, there was bound to be some flashing lights.
So you can imagine how ecstatic I was, when we got to the end of the film without having any seizures. The flashing lights had merely set my dystonia off, which left me blind for a few minutes. The was yet another huge step forward for me, and has filled me with confidence. It was a very successfully and enjoyable experiment 🙂
