I’ve been having seizures for a little over 2 years, the neurologist diagnosed me with epilepsy, took my drivers license, it left me on life support last year I’ve been fighting for disability 2 years, was denied 6 months ago & appealed. Waiting on a court date. It’s really sad that we have to fight for what is already ours.

In on RSDI od SSDI . Unless you had worked in the past , it may be difficult to get on SSDI. You have a better chance being on SSI.

If you do try to apply for this, you may want make sure that you have many documentation on your condition.
