Service/Seizure Dog

I just had my final interview (I'm praying that I am approved) to obtain a Service Dog. I didn't really ask for a Seizure Response dog because I mostly need a dog for my balance and to prevent falls while I am out and about. I don't ever lose consciousness and am not even sure that I have real seizures (although my eeg's show a lot of seizure activity and I'm being treated at a very good Epilepsy Center in Boston, MA) but I do know that my symptoms are neurological as I have little to no control over my legs, slurred speech, and feelings of disassociation. I'm trying to return to the work force and have finally completed an online degree in drug and alcohol counseling and am going to look for part time work soon. I feel that a dog will help me a lot because I have to walk and take public transportation and I get frightened to go out alone in case I get "stuck" places. Does anyone have a Seizure or Service dog?
