sadly where do I start. well They say it was vanishing twin syndrome that started it all. I was one of what would have been triplets but one vanished and the other didnt make it to birth. I suffered from strange black outs as a child first they tested me for every epilepsy known than it was sleep deprivation than it was some form of SIDS. But the black outs never stopped. Now my daughter seems to have inherited it and still the doctors have no idea what or why. The black outs are strange and i know now when they are comming from a dettached feeling. they dont last long and are odd as i can hear n feel evrything while im out sometimes it feels like a struggle to pull myself out of them. similar to trying to swim to the surface after jumping of a diving board. I am scared for my child more than for me as ive been living 26 years with it.
