Hello everyone! My name is Skye. I'm 19 years old I've been living with Petit mal seizures since the age of 6. I'm going to be graduating from Ecot within the next few months. I can't drive. I have to be seizure free for a year before that but I'm still holding onto hope that I can tangle epilepsy so I can eventually drive myself around. I really don't want to be on Disability because I want a career. So, my question for everyone who's taking the time to read these is what career do you have? Is there any that are seizure safe? Please help and give me some options. maybe share what you guys do for your careers!
