    lose days after a sz?
    hula_dancer73 posted:
    hi all.

    How come you lose a day or more when you have had a sz. I have laways wondered about it.

    IT always happenes to me.

    Say it is tuesday that I had one I lose or gain a day, sothe tuesday may become wed or even thrusday that I feel.

    IT just has always caused cursiousty.

    BlazingTiger responded:
    The best way I can explain it is. Your mind & body run a marathon in such a short period of time. it just takes time for your body to recover from it. As Candi once put it there is like an electrical storm going on in the brain. The body over exerts itself in such a short amount of time. This is the best explanation I can think of at this time.

    I agree with Blazing Tiger. I am like a drunk who sleeps it off and when I wake up I feel energetic but for partials I feel like I am in the twilight zone because time moved but the answer I might give you was what you asked me a few minutes ago and they think I was day dreaming or ignoring them.
