I'm sorry to hear of your delema, wow, you've been through a lot of crap. I had a similar situation, I was 47 yrs old at the time.
My "Speech arrests" were affecting my job. (dealing with public on the phone) and my employer of 30 years gave me an ultimatum ~ take the medical retirement pakage or train for a different position with-in (I was an Administrative Manager for the Government of Canada ~ but I had a neuro/psyc evaluation and it was determined that due to the long term use of the meds, I did not have the ability to learn a new job) or get laid off and try my luck with another Gov't Department that would pay me at the current rate.
I took the medical retirement.
It is against the law in Canada for an employer not to hire a potential applicant because of a known seizure condition. It is a form of disrimination and violates the "Canadian Human Rights Act"
By law the employer must provide adequate working conditions or supply special needs as/if required to effectively do the job, even if that means restructuring the work area.
However, if a case like that ever went to court, it would be awfully hard for anybody to prove that they were denied a job for THAT reason, therefore cases like that usually go unreported.
