Gemma Downton had a funny turn at work in November 2012. Thankfully, her colleague called an ambulance. She was suffering from ADEM - a rare brain condition. She spent two weeks in a coma; her husband and mother were told she probably wouldn't survive. She did but when she came around she couldn't talk, couldn't move her right side and couldn't remember she was married. Here she tells BBC Radio Solent her story.
