I enjoyed reading this greatly. It’s a very informative piece and is a great example of a personal insight into a subject which, in my humble opinion, makes h2g2 what it is.
Thank you for this informative entry, I think I may need to see a doctor.

This is a great entry. It's good to see the guide finally letting first person experience enter the guide.

Thank you for your feedback both of you. Unfortunately the author of this piece hasn't been around in h2g2 for some time. Thanks for reading this piece though, I'm very glad you enjoyed and got something out of it.
H2G2 has let first-person pieces in for a long time. The <./>UnderGuide</.> is not "officially" part of the Guide. A team of people pick things out of the Alternative Writing Workshop (<./>Writing-Alternative</.> each month to be put into the <./>UnderGuide</.>, as this piece has been. It is only the Edited Guide which does not allow first-person things in. Anything creative, of opinon, satire etc goes in the Alternative Writing Workshop

Thanks for a very clear description of what is a very rare illness. It’s not surprising that most doctors have not heard of it let alone ordinary folk. I suspect that they would start thinking of Temporal lobe epilepsy or a sleep disorder
There must be some common dangers since “switching off” when crossing the road is dangerous . I suspect you would have problems getting a driving license.
I’ve found some websites which might help.
The only UK site I have found is
