Welcome to the board. I know that living life with Epilepsy can be at times infuriating and frustrating however there are ways of getting around things and finding an alternative route to live our lives. I have complex partials, temporal lobes and grand mal siezures. I have been having them my whole life. Despite this I have managed to do alot of things that the doctors said I could not achieve. I now have a car licence with conditions attached (auto car only, no driving for more than an hour straight, for long trips I must have a passnger who is over 18 preferably with licence, if I feel like I am going to have a siezure I am to cease driving immediately no matter where I am and no driving for 4 months after a siezure or until an EEG is approved which ever is first). Techniquely I'm not supposed to live on my own, but I have come up with a living arrangment that has been okayed by my doc.I bought a duplex, I live in one side and rent the other one out to people who are willing to keep an eye on me for a discount. So far this set up has worked with no probs. The thing I find is that you just have to find differant ways of achieving things, I used to feel at times that my life was on hold because of it then I discovered I just had to take the longway round in the end. I am sure you have figured that out though
However it is normal to have your grouchy days when you wish you didn't have to live with it and you could swap brains with someone for the next few months to have a break...........lol. Maybe when the doc sees what Keppra will do with your situation, you never know you might be abel to get your licence, I am fortunate enough that I know when I am going to have a siezure and have enough time to stop no matter what. That was one of the main reasons I was allowed to get it. Feel free to talk to anyone here they are all pretty good people. Once again welcome.
