[WARNING!] EPILEPSY IS SERIOUS STUFF
I TURNED IN MY DRIVERS LICENSE AFTER A FATAL ACCIDENT WAS REPORTED IN THE LOCAL NEWS PAPER AND THEN THE LIGHT BULB ON MY HEAD WENT ON BRIGHT. As an epileptic since I was 8 yrs old and taking the dreaded dialantin sodium & phenobarbital has kept me sane and grand mal seizure free. One doctor took all my prescribed meds for 2 weeks-he wanted to see what would happen-well i had a grand mal seizure while on my stationary bike, fell off, bit my tongue and had a severe headach for days and stayed home from work just to get my body back to where it was prior to obeying this Dr. If I could find something but after 70 years I will stick to my apple cider vinegar in V8 or water while it still not hurting but helping my arthritis and osteoporosis. Annnd shiny hair too.
Please stick to your meds until you are truly sure and that your examiner thinks you can go ahead with alternatives. It physically hurts badly to not use the safety first method. I pray for all us epileptics especially the kids. While I was a kid I had to fight the kids for all their ugly remarks that made me cry in anger and then I began to fight them back because this is not my fault. You are all in my prayers.
