I've been through the same thing and yes, there still is a stigma attached to this condition but if you think about it it's no different than an employee having diabetes or a heart condition.
I have to relate it to my situation.
It's me again (Randy)
I've only had one gran-mal siezure in 26 yrs. and I too am stigmatized or labelled. Because of the side affects from the meds, it has slowed me down and made me uncapable of learning new tasks so after fighting with my employer of 30 yrs to keep my job, My employer put me on Disability.
