My boyfriend and I have been together over a year and our relationship is strong. He has been waiting for an appointment following a grand mal seizure in late June and finally had one - they strongly believe he has JME ( myoclonic, tonic-clonic, and absence seizures). This rules him out from a job in the army he was hoping to take up in the next few months and means he cannot continue learning to drive. He is now feeling very depressed and upset at the prospect of no longer being able to do what he wanted to with his life. Although I am doing my best to sympathise and understand, I know others also with epilepsy will give the best advice on what I should do to support him in this situation. Please help. I am really worried about him.
