Epilepsy. I was not very familiar with the disorder until I experienced my first seizure during my freshmen year in college. I had an “episode” – termed for a seizure breakout – in the middle of the night while I was asleep. I woke up feeling lethargic and confused as to why medical responders were surrounding me. My roommate informed me that I had a seizure during my sleep and, thankfully, immediately dialed for help. Before that night, I had no idea I was epileptic.
