So, I was diagnosed with epilepsy last november. I'm nineteen and I had just started my first year of college. Yeah, it was hard because I had just started college, I don't know what causes them, and I can't drive.. but what I don't understand is why my parents are getting sooooo overprotective when I know what to do, and I have a bunch of friends that know what to do if I have one... I guess I just need some help with how to tell my parents I can still be a normal teenager without disrespecting them.. I'm not aloud to stay out past 9p.m. and I have to have my medicine with me all the time and make a journal of what I eat and when I do.. I just don't understand why I can't be "normal"... whenever friends ask me to go out and hang out its later at night, and I have to say no.. I can barely make it to mandatory things for a sorority I'm in, I guess I just need some advice...?
