I had my first grand mail seizure in early December before I was diagnosed with epilepsy. Before it happened, I was seeing stars and couldn’t figure out what was wrong. My fiancé came in from walking the dogs and I said I was fine, having no idea what was about to happen.
Hiro is our Australian Shepherd and my “Velcro” dog. I walked to the bedroom to grab eye drops and he followed me there almost stalking me. Before I got to the eye drops the seizure hit. My dog jumped on me, started barking and alerted my fiancé. During the seizure I lost consciousness.

Without my dog alerting my fiancé quick enough I could’ve possibly died. I’m so lucky to have both of them in my life and to still be here this day! Hiro is always able to recognize if I have an episode coming on!
