Hi all,

I was hospitalised with convulsions many years ago after consuming a more than healthy quantity of Camphorated oil. What long term effects could be expected? I gather at the time of the incident in 1959 that i was in serious danger of not surviving to tell the story - Presumably the medics down at Haverfordwest did a reasonable job or i would not be typing right now!
