Lost my job this past May due to mostly my brain. I worked for an attorney, and I was not cut out for the requirements such as multi-tasking, attention to detail, and a fast paced environment; not to mention my inability to concentrate and that my short term memory has packed up and left. Fast forward to August, I went through the hiring process with Fed ex, and when I got the physical I had to disclose my seizure disorder. I do not fit the criteria for the D.O.T.. A person has to be seizure free for ten years, and not on medication. My seizures are when I am sleeping and I have not had one in over six years. Dilantin is still my drug of choice. Back to the drawing board. Have been having trouble with depression, a bonus when having a seizure disorder. I am 52 years old, my only working experience is in an office and that is not an option. I am ready to declare a disability, but not sure I am ready for the red tape that goes with. I need the income, and am in good shape and health otherwise. It seems the job competition is tough and I am trying to figure out where to go next. Anyone familiar with the process of getting hired with a disability? God I hate the label.
