How to cope?

I'm newly diagonsed epilespy patient, I was diagonsed December of 2013. The doctors that I have aren't really giving me any advice or much information on this. It's finally starting to sink in on how it's changing my life. I have a hard time speaking, my words get switched around or don't come out right. That and I can't remember things like I used to. But one big change for that's hard to deal with is, I'm going to school for criminal justice and I've always wanted to become a police officer and help people within my community. But with my epilespy I can't, one trigger of mine is strobe lights. Cop lights especially, I found out. I just want some advice of how to beat this, what are some things that I can do to help me have less seizures and get back to normal. I know this is permant, but there has to be something I can do to help them. Any advice is much appreciated!!!
