College and alcohol

Topic: 

Hey guys,

so i am 22 years old and in my fourth year of college. Even though it's been four years I still find it hard connecting with people my age especially since I don't drink alcohol. I am too nervous to try drinking because I don't know how it will affect my medication. Same goes for staying up late since a lot of my friends want to pull all nighters which I can't do bc sleep deprivation is a trigger for me. I just have a hard time telling people about why I can't do these things because they don't understand the risks and what it's like to have a seizure. Anyone else have this problem?
