If you have diabetes you're diabetic, if you have epilepsy you're epileptic.
Epilepsy is a physical problem and people need to understand this to get
rid of the old-time.stigmas. Non-epileptic seizures- like panic attacks-are
from the mind not epilepsy. I am epileptic so I have seizures because of
my epilepsy is always what I tell others.

To Those driving when the Dr says no.....That is putting other people's lives in your hands. Just as bad as the jerks drunk driving! A good friend of mine KILLED some people including a small child because she lied about having seizures .She had one driving, went into oncoming traffic. She almost died too. She is now facing all kinds of legal issues including jail time. It is just not worth it! If the tables were turned & it happened to you, wouldn't you be furious, wanting justice if someone did that to you, your family or friends? Please think about what can happen to not only you but your family & loved ones, as well as the innocent people you can injure or kill & your freedom & pocket book, or just damaging your car, it can be pretty expensive and is against the law to drive within 6 months of having a seizure where I am from. I had to surrender my license. Totally sucks, but at least I won't hurt anyone.
