Last autumn I suffered a blow when it was revealed to me that the strange sensations I had suffered on a few occasions over the last few years were actually Partial Seizures. I had been enjoying the new person my Temporal Lobe surgery made me back in 1983. It had been some effort finding my first job: I actually took twelve and a half years after leaving school to find someone who had any faith in me. Thankfully those years are history due to the modern Equality Laws, and to demonstrate that my employers, after hearing the news from me about epileptic symptoms returning, have been quick to ensure I am OK. Some tasks I have been left out from doing, mainly because of the memory problems my surgery left me with, but to the other extent there are other tasks I will perform more than my colleagues, and at the end of the day things balance out. I hope this will demonstrate that with an understanding employer we can contribute too.
