I have had epilepsy since the age of 14, never been allowed to drive because of it, have had 3 children, and i am on medication for the seizures, i dont get any disability allowence, although epilepsey is classed as a DISABILITY.
i dont get the benefit, because, I DONT HAVE ENUF SEIZURES,....who wants them, NOT ME,,,
My eldest is nearly 14, and then i have 2 more, aged 10 and 9. i am a single mum, and when i have a seizure in front of them, THEY ARE AMAZING, THEY ALL 3 know what to do, and always stay calm, i hate having the seizures, believe me, but, i cant help it,
THANKS KIDS, YOU ARE ALL AMAZING, YOU ALL 3 DESERVE A MEDAL,....
