Incapacity Medical

I received a letter Monday to tell me I have to go for this new medical and I am in a bit of a panic. Has anybody been for one??? I suffer from absences 2 to 3 times a week and full blown grand mal every 2 to 3 weeks. Have headaches that last 2 or 3 days at least once a week. Plus I had small strokes last year and the op cleaning out an artery. My memory is useless at times and I cannot get words out. Stress makes it all worse. Apart from that I am healthy !!!!!!!

I am from the United States so not familier with any of the benefits there. There is a lady named "Mo" at Epilepsy Society (www.epilepsysociety.org.uk) who is a benefits specialist and is always happy to help. If you join Epilepsy Society and post your questions there I'm sure she will help you.

Best of luck,
