Who is this person standing over you? He is calling someones name and gently shaking you -- who is he, and whose name is he calling?When she was 25, Leanne Chilton suffered a grand mal seizure in her sleep. Slowly, her mind began to clear and she realized that a paramedic had been calling her back into consciousness. Up to that point she had been living a normal life. Now, doctors told her that she had epilepsy, would probably experience many more seizures, and would be on a strict regimen of medication for the rest of her life. But Leanne was determined to do something courageous to end her disability.Utterly desperate, she found out about a surgical procedure that held a tentative promise for controlling seizures. She bravely underwent the operation, and now she tells us about it in a fascinating memoir of a terrifying -- and triumphant -- period in her life.
