Work & epilepsy

   I have been working for McDonalds for three years, In all that time my epiliepsy has been up & dawn... Fanliy the penny dropped Monday. I had a full blown seizure and nealy, fainted lookly someone caught me before I went down. I had two auras and hand shacking my head is hurting.


It is tough. I work in corporate America. The last one I had my manager thought I was ignoring her. I saw the frustration in her face. Then when I told her what happened, she felt awful.
