: Yes, you're right, everyone's complex partial seizures are different (like fingerprints).

I wish you the best of luck in your health as well. I had my first seizure at the age of 7, was put on Dilantin and was eventually taken off by the age of 16. I remained seizure-free until I turned 21 and had one in my college dorm room. I was put back on Dilantin and lost my Driver's License for a year. I am now 23 and have been fine up until last Thursday when I had a seizure on the train ride home from work. I black out for a moment, then see everything happening in slow motion. I too can hear what is being said around me, but for those few seconds cannot answer anything correctly. It's fustrating. According to my Dr. I have to wait a week and have my Dilantin levels re-tested. If they are back to normal, I can resume my "normal" lifestyle.
