I've been driving for several years and I don't let the fact that I have epilepsy come between me and something I enjoy doing,I believe for myself that epilepsy is an illness not a disease, and if I kept letting myself believe that it was a disability then I myself would become disabled, so I choose not to believe that it holds me down and I do what I will. Don't fear getting into accidents or might, just drive and enjoy the experience,I have driven all over the U.S. and I'm dam glad I did I saw a lot of beautiful smiles and beautiful places because I don't let the fear get in my way. Just drive and enjoy 😎

Therapy for 30 yrs.
& i feel i try to do, what
