In the U.S., it can be really hard. Expect to get turned down the first time you apply. And expect to have it yanked a few times after you do get it. Write your congressperson about it. Be sure the applicant has a long history of being fired from jobs due to epilepsy-related problems. I do not recommend it as anything but a last resort. Those of us with epilepsy (and everyone else) bust our asses to support everyone on disability, and I know of one person who has the gall to want to try to use epilepsy as a reason to get disability, and she doesn't even have epilepsy, and this infuriates me to no end. There are people who are really sick, and who really need it, and they should get it, but it is people like this person that make it harder for those who actually need it to get it.
