A couple of ideas.

1. Check with the Epilepsy Foundation in your state . See if they have any advice.

2. Check thru you county for a DRS Councilor ( Dept. of Rehabilitation Services) . They can help you find work too.

I alway looked for jobs of my interest. I would always start at the county workforce center and job search on the computers. I would also update my Résumés . I would then fill the application along with the Résumés.

When it came time for interview I would let the Employer know about my Epilepsy. Out of all the interviews I did , one or or two of those employers would get a hold of me for hire.

Now I can’t tell you what employers will hire you in your state since I’m in a different state.

I don't think an employer can ask about those questions. Covered by hippa. I told my current employer about 3 weeks after I was hired.

You are not obligated to tell any employer that you have epilepsy, and if they dont hire you because you told them then that is discrimination. I am not sure what your capabilities are, but like Leslie said maybe you can find a job with a bit of flexibility or a schedule that works best for you.
