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.
I've had EP for 25 years and wanted to make this comment;
"If a qualified person is not hired or is terminated from employment as a result of a seizure condition, it is considered a form of descrimination and a violation of your Human Rights" resulting in a hefty fine or jail time to the employer as per the Canadian Human Rights Act.
The employer must provide adequate work accommodations and/or special needs required to do the job.
My bosses thought that I was putting it on so I wouldn't have to do certain things.
Through my employer (Government of Canada) they finally sent me to a "neuro/psyc" to examine me and DOCUMENT what I can/can't do.
I don't know where you're from but I'm from Canada and we have the right to request this type of exam, in MY case it was my employer that requested it.
As a result of it being documented, my employer sent the results to "Health Canada" and since the job was being illiminated, the report showed that "as a result of the long term use of the meds, I could not learn new tasks "and requested that I go on DISABILITY and then medical retirement.
That proved to my employer that I was telling the truth all along and NOT FAKING IT.
