Losing time - went to the bathroom and 'lost' almost 2 hours wth watch

    I did not faint, I know I was taking a bath but I'm sure as hell that did not take 2 hours. I just can't remember what happened. This has been happening recently usually once or twice a week? Is it possible that occasional valium use caused some damage to my brain? And no, pretty sure I was not abducted by aliens.

    That's why I take showers.

    If you were taking a bath you might not notice blacking out/fainting since you're sitting down (presumably lying against something), the brain doesn't recognise the lapse in time, its kinda like blinking your eyes...

    Thanks for replying. That was just today's example though but it happens in other random situations too, even watching tv

    Not trying to worry you but this kinda sounds like narcolepsy...look it up and see what you think?

    That's actually falling asleep isn't it? So I don't think that's the case, because it's as if other people don't notice that I'm so spaced out or whatever this is. My brain is such a creep for doing stuff like that!

    That happened to me whilst watching TV when I was intoxicated, but that was like few months ago.

    Epilepsy can cause blackouts similar to these. It can be easily missed and misdiagnosed.

    For example a child in class seems to daydream quite a bit, they sometimes don't listen when spoken to and stare out the window during class. They are diagnosed with inattentive ADHD or the teacher just assumes they're a little spacey and they never look into it. It can be so easily overlooked but you should google it. There are quite a few different types of seizures so you should consider going to the doctor and discussing your symptoms to see what they think.
