Angry being able to drive

hi there, I'm 18 and have epilepsy. I have had it since I was six years old. (I won't go into the story of how I got it...boring!)

but anyway, I have simple partial seizures. I had a temporal lobectomy in 1998 but it didn't work. So now I have seizures almost everyday, Luckily thought, I only get a little bit sick to my stomach and that's it.

What bothers me is that I am not able to drive. My seizures are so mild. I never loose control at all. I've had seizures while I'm skiing, giving a speech, teaching a piano class etc. and no one ever notices and it doesn't affect my performance.

I feel that I should be able to drive, what do you guys think? Do you think that some of us should be allowed to drive? your input would be appreciated!

Thanks very much!
