Epilepsy And Work
If you have epilepsy, thinking positively about what you can do is important when looking for a job and keeping in employment. It is vital to be able to identify and stress your skills and experience, and to have a clear and realistic picture about what you can offer to prospective employers.
Finding a Job
What sort of work?
There are a variety of jobs open to people with epilepsy – and only some which aren’t.
Because everyone’s epilepsy is different, the sort of job you decide to apply for depends on your epilepsy. Ask yourself some questions; What sort of seizures do I have? How often do I have them? How well controlled by medication are they? Will my medication slow me down at work?
