Hello everyone,

Epilepsy, depending on the progression of the condition, the intensity of the seizures, and other symptoms/complications, can make certain working environments challenging.

Let's hear from you.

Do you work currently with epilepsy? If so, what type of work do you do? How does epilepsy affect your job duties?

Do you work with epilepsy? Does epilepsy affect your job?

Posted on

I do work currently. I am an intake specialist at a family owned law firm. The stress is moderate (I do not think I would be successful at a more stressful position... probably would be prone to more seizures), benefits are OK (I would love to find a better job, less stress, but better benefits) but I am nervous to look because they are really understanding with my condition.

However, I always worry about how long I will be able to last working.

Thank you for listening.

I don't like the feeling of taking all the medication I need in the morning and night, it makes feel so dependent on it. Like if I am stuck in a situation where I don't have it for my epilepsy. Working or not, it is always there.

Hi @Lvidana‍ Thank you for sharing. This specific discussion is dedicated to the topic of working with epilepsy... Are you working? If so, what is your role and how does epilepsy affect your work, if it does?

If you would to discuss more about the treatments and the feeling of dependency on taking them in the morning and night, I recommend you to create a new discussion in the Treatment Section for Epilepsy (Click Here): Treatments for Epilepsy . You can create your own discussion by clicking the create new discussion. Members will then see your discussion and be able to respond to the topic... Hope this helps.
