Sorry that you have been diagnosed with epilepsy.
I can understand that it must be quite hard for you right now.
I am a nurse (qualified just a year now). Don't you give up on the nursing, like you said you are just postponing it for a while.
Hopefully soon you will be sorted out with your medication and once the epilepsy is under control you can get back to your plans again.
So glad you found this site, there will be plenty of support here When you need it.
Once again welcome to HW.
Take care for now
