I've had the 'jumping the sidewalk' problem recently, too, but I'm 24, which is so incredibly embarrassing. ;)
When I first started 'feeling off', my biggest irritation was that I would be walking around town (didn't have money for a car then, vs. not being able to drive one now), and realize that I was several blocks past where I was supposed to be going, and I didn't even remember walking! All of my regular EEG's were normal, only the VEEG showed problems, so I'm glad you're getting that done. MRI with contrast helped too.
As for being scared about the driving; yeah, it's a good idea to hold off until you get cleared by the docs, but don't ever let fear keep you from doing anything. Before I started having Grand Mals, I would Mountain bike and rock climb as often as I could. Then all of a sudden no one even wanted me to climb a ladder by myself! For a few weeks I was incredibly apprehensive about everything, but then one of my friends, who knew about the seizures and how I felt, asked me to go climb with her.
I got out there, looked up at a 150 ft. climb, and told myself there was no way; I could already picture myself bashing against the rocks. But with my friends coaxing, I decided to go up (w/ a harness and helmet, mind you). The first time I didn't get very far at all when I started to panic, and had to be let down. But after a break, and a hike and conversation with my friend, I was determined to try it again. And you know what? I made it all the way to the top! My friend couldn't even do that, and she'd been climbing two years longer than me. (I'm not bragging - ok, yes I am). ;)
It's still frustrating when I get told I can't do something, like drive. But I know it's only temporary, and as soon as I am able, I'll be back out there with the best of them.
