"It is horrible, although at least I have a warning. Some poor guys fall to the floor. I'm able to get somewhere safe, though my brain will have started to go mushy and it can be difficult to know where to go. It is like a rising feeling going up my legs and body, like some form of paralysis. Sometimes I can hardly breathe, tears go down my face but I am not crying. It is a despairing, sickening feeling that rises up. I want to kick out but can't. It gets to the point where I can't swallow water or a tablet. But the actual seizure – because I'm not fully conscious – is a release. [It used to take] a long time to rouse me from them. I'd find it difficult to talk. Normally I'd sleep – my record was 22 hours."
