The transition from school to college is much more difficult than Mark expected. The workload on his program is huge and he feels very stressed as his assignment deadlines loom. As a result of stress and lack of sleep, Mark has a seizure, which leaves him unconscious. After the seizure he is tired and disoriented for several days. He contacts his instructors, who grant him extensions for his assignments. He also meets with a college counselor who teaches him some strategies to manage his stress. He works with his instructors and a disability advisor to plan for a slightly-reduced course load, so that he can complete his studies, while managing his health.
