In Reply to: epilepsy/just found out today.... posted by jenni on November 14, 2000 at 18:40:38:

Hi Jenni! My name is Debi and my husband's name is Dustin. He has had epilepsy since he was 12 years old. He takes medication for it 3 times a day (Tegratol). He has had his drivers license since he was 16 years old. He has had it temporaritly suspended, like you for a few months at a time, but NEVER NEVER has any doctor told him that he would never be able to drive again. Please don't let anyone scare you like that. You can live a normal life, even if you have to take medication everyday. Dustin drives 160 miles round trip everyday to/from work. He lives a completely normal life, and his seizures are more frequent than anybody likes. Please email us and we'll talk some more. Sincerely, Debi and Dustin: Hello. i just found out that i have epilepsy. I'm 27 yrs. old. I had a seizure six yrs ago coming out of recoverory from a operation. and on sunday i had another one. The doc. said no driving for six months and if i was seizure free tor this time he would allow me to drive again. but he highly doudts that i will be able to drive again...Does anyone get SSI for epilepsy?? What kind of restrictions do you all have?? what kind of adjustments do i need to make to my everyday living. I have two young children and unsopportive husband. thanks.
