I would get my license and if you're paranoid then have a passenger in case so they can take the wheel. but really its been 5 years. its down to do you feel comfortable driving. I have visual type seizures and if I've been having some that day I won't drive because I don't feel comfortable. but on a day I'm good I'll drive.maybe drive around an empty lot and see how you feel first

I have epilepsy. DON"T put me in the same category as people who text and drink. they make this choice to do so. I have no choice. I have seizure's and there is not a damn thing I can do about it except take my meds and stay home ALL of the time. I don't drive. I don't work. I wish the hell I could do both. I can't. What I can do is keep others safe from my affliction.
