Please -- especially if you know you suffer from something like epilepsy or diabetes with blood-sugar drops -- don't get behind the wheel if you don't feel well. Call a cab, call a family member or friend, have a work friend drive you or call 911, even if it seems like an overreaction. The potential of endangering yourself and other drivers is too high a price to pay for being embarrassed to ask for help or bother someone.

Bless her and her family along with the driver of the other car, she could also have been killed.

That man chose to get in a car when he was feeling light headed and had epilepsy. And while his death is tragic, more tragic is the injuries sustained by the other woman who would have been fine if not for his selfish decision.
