I have not always suffered from epilepsy and I left school, started work, learned to drive etc as most people. I was then affected by epilepsy and the inability to drive plus the feeling of "being different" upset me a great deal in initial years. In time medication was able to control the seizures to a degree but I'm unlikely to ever drive.
The biggest change I made was making sure I told people that I had epilepsy. Although some seemed wary I am pleased to say the majority accepted it with no problem and were keen to know more about it in many cases. This boosted my confidence dramatically and I can now live a much more normal life.
In summary, tell people about your condition, be confident and be happy. You are just as normal as anyone else.
