New to Epilepsy

I am a 22 year old female new to having seizures. They started about a year and a half ago after a car accident. I am having a hard time adjusting to this new part of my life. Doctors have been of no help to me and have not officially diagnosed me with epilepsy, however I do have 1-3 seizures a week. During all of which I remain conscious. All are preceeded by an aura, slowed speech, dry mouth... Any advice to get the doctors to move faster on a diagnosis and how to deal with the stress of having seizures every week?
