I was a Quantity Surveyor for about 8 years when during that 8 years, I developed Epilepsy at 26. For about 5 years the medication worked, then for the past five years I have been having complex partial seizures weekly until recently (past 6 months) when they are occurring once a month. I think it is anxiety and stress which triggers my seizures and I have been managing to keep myself more calm about my life and it seems to be working.
I just wish I had a good job but I don't know what sort of job I could go for - not having a driving licence and the minute epilepsy gets mentioned I think the interviewer/employer would put a big black cross against my name. For five years I have been working from home on my own little business but that has just been to keep me occupied really and I don't get out much with it. Most days the only person I speak to is the miserable man behind the counter at the Post Office! I believe that if I get a good job the medication will start working fully again.
Anyone any ideas what sort of jobs are open to people with epilepsy? I know that's a big question but I've got no idea.
