I was reading your post and was wondering how long it has been since you have had a seizure of any kind? I know you said the accident happened in 2002 and you would have to be seizure free for 2 years before you got your license back.
You also said you had a medic alert bracelet on. Did the neuro give you the bracelet, but say that you could drive? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm just trying to figure out what is going on with me. I started having seizures this year and they stopped, but I was never given a medic alert bracelet, but was told not to drive for 6 months. When I went to the seizure clinic and had no seizures while I was there the Neuro said I could drive and didn't need to take the Keppra anymore.
I guess I'm just afraid I will have another seizure while driving and hurt someone else. I would never want that to happen. I have never had a grande mal-seizure, just complex-partials and simple-partials.
I know how hard it can be not being able to drive when you have driven for so long. I'm sure it is especially hard for you as a man. I have only been driving short distances since I was told I could drive again, but I'm not sure that I should drive at all after reading your post.
Thanks for any answers you can give me. Take care and you are in my thoughts and prayers.
