Hello Sublimecraft! Thanks for the interest in my thread here.
This type of experience is something I had heard about on several occasions over the years, but I was never convinced that it all went down just as
the story-teller reports. I assumed it was over embellishment in order captivate the reader. It is not like that, the experiences are impossible to
differentiate from reality.
There are no clues to help me remember what I was doing during the missing time. Maybe I had been accidentally exposed to a chemical that caused me to
completely block out the time period in question. Surely there would be a clue or two that would point to that being the catalyst for blacking out.
If I did lose memory of time because chemicals effected me that way, wouldn't there be clues? Shouldn’t the other people around me at the time have
similar experiences? I think I would see, hear, or smell something that would spark memories of what happened. It seems there should be some vague
recollection from the beginning or the end of the experience, but there is nothing. 1 minute I am on the phone, the next minute it is 3hrs+ later.
Still trying to understand it and working on a way to monitor myself, in the event another episode happens

I didn’t realize there are many different seizures until a couple years ago… I went to a potential job-site to give an estimate. I talked with the
contractor and home owner for a few minutes. The home owner stepped away for a few moments and the contractor commented to me about how weird the guy
He was right, the guy was very strange, very spastic. He acted as if he knew everything about our jobs, but it was clear he didn’t.
I hate working on jobs where the client hangs around, watching everything you do and tries to order you around and do things the way they want…
Don’t get me wrong, I always give clients what they want as-far-as the type of material or designs we use, but I rarely ever change the process we
use or the way we work to suit what the client has heard about from someone else or the internet…)
The home owner returned and the 3 of us walked across a vacant lot to look at a creek behind his house. About half-way across the lot, the home owner
fell over and started seizing on us. It lasted several minutes and was pretty scary to see, especially not knowing the guy’s medical status.
An ambulance came and took him away. A few days later I visited the man again and he told me what the Drs. Diagnosed, since he has no history of
epilepsy or seizures. Apparently he experienced ‘pseudo-seizures’. Seizures that are not real, in the sense of other seizures that result from
another medical issue.
They are brought on by the patient themselves. I am confused on whether it is something they voluntarily do, or is it is their subconscious that
initiates the seizure… very strange stuff.
As far as your vision questions:
Yes, I have vision issues and have since childhood. I have migraines too. I always know when I am about to have a migraine, because I get a percentage
of my vision blocked by something that looks like a rectangular shaped kaleidoscope of light that starts on the right side and eventually makes it’s
way across my vision. As soon as it disappears, the migraine kicks in full power and goes for a few days.
Also, I have poor vision… my left eye is much worse than my right eye… I can’t see distant objects well and also have astigmatism.
It’s also strange you mention auras too. I see them, but not in the mystical capacity so many other people claim. They are different shades, but
generally a vanilla looking color. The area just around the object or person’s head and upper torso. I have seen very light green, light blue,
vanilla, rose, and a purple looking color.
Seeing these things also tells me I am in danger of having a migraine, because sometimes after seeing them I will begin seeing the blind spot that
looks like a kaleidoscope of color. The best way to describe the way the auras look would be to look at a light for a few seconds, then look away. You
will see the ’ghost’ image burned into line of sight for a few minutes.
If you look at the light bulb for a few seconds, then turn to look at another light bulb. The 2nd bulb should be the same shape, but much smaller.
This makes the outline of the first bulb to show like an aura around the second, smaller bulb.
That’s pretty much what they look like, except with slight color shades. I never considered them to be anything more than something related to my
poor vision and head aches…
