    Thats it !!
    All off. Tunnel fare lost.
    Gutted.
    I had an Epileptic seizure 2 days ago and can't drive for 6 months..
    No history of Epilepsy, it just came out of the blue...
    So thats it folks, we shan't see you all down there in Spain this years.
    The van will just be stood up the top of the garden waiting....
    Have a good time all of you that are going and look after "Ianthebuilder".

    Yep, I'm with Jim here. A young family member had a fit and blackout while driving with her two babies in the car, luckily at a very low speed and nobody hurt buy it's still a massive worry.
    Hope the docs can sort it for you. :xThumb:

    That's sad for you.

    But maybe not as sad as you think, the ticket lasts a year provided you don't pass the travel date, so go on line and make the departure date 11 months from when you bought it and then it's parked. You can bring it forward again when you are fit.

    So very sorry your plans have been cancelled in such an unexpected way.

    I had a 1st seizure 9 yrs ago, lost my licence for a year. Very inconvenient as I didn't have a partner to do any driving.

    I think it was initially renewed for 1 yr, then 3, now as normal. I'm on a very low dose of medication.

    I know it's no consolation but the 6 months will pass soon enough.

    Good luck

    Karen

    So sorry Mitch. Hope it all goes well for you and was a "one off" episode. I do realise how frightening it is as a friend of mine has epilepsy - luckily very well controlled.

    Thats a real bummer. As above comment by Brian - we had to cancel at short notice in the summer and have rescheduled for the end of January as we had booked the tickets for July in early February. Can all be done online.

    Sorry to hear.
    If it's your first you definitely need checking up - a neurologist and CT/MRI scan.
    Sad to say losing your licence may be the least of your worries.h

    massive sympathy for you, we have had much more trivial issues delay things for us,

    take care of yourself, enjoy the rest as best you can

    So sorry for you both;
    I know sh*t happens but what lousy luck with the timing.
