    that u are aware of the oncoming doom. I never regain the minutes or whatever before the seizure. One moment its life and the next moment I am trying to get up. The seizure I had in 1988 when I came too I couldn't breathe, and rolled over on my stomach. I crawled over to the couch where the phone was, and just sat on the floor until I could figure out who I was and who to call. I was in pain and I called my mom-in-law. She took me to the hospital and I had a broken vertabre in my back, which means I have no defense or reflexes. I must just pass out.

      I have only had about 5 that I know of.  The ones that I had while I was awake, I just remember one last moment, and then there is a period of time that I am out, and then I begin to regain consciousness, but I am not aware of that regaining of consciousness until many minutes have passed.  

      So, in those situations, I never had any aura that I recall.
