I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 6th grade. They were sleep seizures caused by meningitis I had as a baby; but, overall controlled by meds. In 2010 I was on my way to work and blacked out and ran into a tree. We are not sure if I had a seizure or not; but, my license was suspended. My husband and I decided to look into MUSC and possible surgery. After every test possible and more than a year later, they were able to locate where the seizures were and I was able to have surgery. I no longer have seizures. I do have problems with memory which I think has been caused from the surgery and meds I have taken over the years. I now wish I had opened up more when I was younger to sights like this one; but, maybe my story can help others now

I was diagnoses with epilepsy when I was 3 months old. and everyday after that has been tough. I've tried different programs but they didn't seen to come through with anything. know that I am 24yrs I'm still trying to file for disability and or at least find a job that will treat me like another one of their employees. know considering the economy I haven't received any information about jobs or benefits. does anyone know what I can do?

When I was 2 yrs. old, I fell 2 stories onto the sidewalk below. It was probably due to that fall that I began having seizures at age 7. I'm now 64 and still have 4+ seizures per mo. I am now retired after working 30 yrs. at a university. I've had a wonderful life despite my seizures. I've been married to a wonderful woman for most of my adult life. She is a doll, especially in putting up with my seizures.
I would like to see S. Carolina re-institute a chapter of EFA. I feel that there is not a lot I can do along this line since I don't drive. You probably already know how many limits that not driving puts one one's activities. For me at least, this is the biggest problem due to my seizures.
