Default I'm having a bad day

I just learned I have epilepsy. Oh wow, that'* fun. And it'* a weird case, too. My doctor won't let me go back to school because of this.

This means:
A) I don't have a job
B) I have to live with my family AGAIN (I had to take 18 GRUELING years of living with those simpletons)
C) My internet is SUPER SLOW (big for me, not for others)
D) The loan on the Bonneville is due in 2 weeks (note I do not have a job)
E) I'll have absolutely NO friends except for the people on BC (not like that'* a bad thing, lol)


Please, I need some real cheering up right now

this probably wont make you feel that much better, but just remember that someone else out there has it worse than you.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition. People who have it a prone to have seizures due to abnormal activity in the brain.

Why can't you go to school? What'* the "weird case?" Usually epilepsy doesn't get worse as you get older, and most people can live a 'normal' life.

Sorry, I kinda wrote that in a rush.

My condition is different because I don't have "physcial" seizures. My seizures happen chemically, which, although directly undetectable, affect my way of dealing with things, like homework, and temper. I don't have a job because I won't be going back to Cincy for a bit, and that'* where my job is. My doctor told me not to go back because if I did, my GPA would suffer GREATLY while I start this new medication.

Also, what I really started this for, does any of you have any experience with any kind of epilepsy?

I don't have experience, but I know about it as I work for a medical education company.

So do you 'blackout' and stare without responding, etc.?

My ex used to have seizures where she would blackout out for about 11 seconds after someone asked her a question for example. She would "wake up" and not even know she blacked out. She had "petit mal" epilepsy (petty mall).

You do have rights when it comes to education.

Yeah, I know. I'm trying to figure that out right now, but I still think it would be best that I wait a year. My doctor is also petitioning to have my grades for the first semester removed from my transcript. I have so much running through my mind right now I don't know where to start
