Trista Sutter opened up about her seizure in an interview broadcast on Tuesday’s “GMA.” Check out the video below.

Sutter, the very first star of “The Bachelorette,” suffered a seizure while on a family vacation in Croatia earlier this month. In her first interview on the medical emergency, she recalled, “All I remember is feeling very dizzy and very nauseous, and then the next thing I knew, I was in this dream. The only way I can describe it is it was like a white euphoria. A lot of people have talked about near-death experiences. I don’t know if that’s what I had.”

Husband Ryan Sutter revealed his wife fell on top of their daughter in convulsions, and, as a trained EMT, he was able to jump into action. “I was checking her pulse. She wasn’t breathing. She’s turning sort of blue,” he remembered. And their daughter was “traumatized.” “I think she probably still is a bit,” Sutter admitted. “I’m laying on her with my eyes wide open, rolling back in my head, my jaw is clenched. I’m shaking. When I came out of it, I remember [Ryan] saying, ‘You just had a seizure.'”

Though rushed to the hospital and subjected to a battery of tests, doctors could not find anything wrong with the reality star. Sutter, who is fairly active, acknowledged having headaches prior to the ordeal, but no other indication of potential health issues. Now, she said, “I kinda want to be that voice for people who have gone through something similar. Seizures are not pretty. It’s embarrassing to lose control of your body, and I think a lot of people feel alone out there, and I want them to know that they’re not.”

The former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant also has to live with the possibly that an episode could happen again. “It’s changing my life. It still is to this day,” she said, noting she’s not driving. “Life is fragile. It’s precious, and you need to take the time to enjoy it and the people around you.” Watch the full interview below.
