My name is Janet and I just had my most recent gran mal seizure on Monday, July 28th. My doctor says that the state of Florida will not allow me to drive for six months after a seizure, which although EXTREMELY bothersome, it is completely understandable.
For me, I am finding it very difficult to cope with my not driving. I am a very independent person. Everyday after work I either go to the gym or to dance classes. I never just go home - I don't have any children and my husband gets home late from work.
Please let me know how you guys are getting up and about. Public transportation in Miami is dismal. Do you know if epiliptics qualify for special transportations benefits? I feel really bad in having my husband and mother taking me places. What's great is that I work with my husband, so it's not that completely bad - although I used to sleep in a bit more when I drove myself :)
I find myself feeling so anxious just knowing that I can't take my car and go.
Would love to hear from you
