Your quite welcome I feel awful when I hear of others restricting their life cause may have a seizure. Our minds are affected by how we all react. I've had all types over 48 years but never depressed just deal with each and I'm fine.

Geniuses in history Einstein,Edison, Poe
Michelangelo, Socrates to name a few. Not even mentioned in bios cause they had no idea what it was. We do now and have meds to help. If all you lose is driving be glad you can walk and talk normally regardless

Don't worry about not being able to drive! I had seizures in cars and nearly killed myself so many times... I had to hang it up.
