    Truthfully, I wouldn't be driving. The last thing you need is to have an seizure while driving, absent or worse, and crash into another car. I know it's not the greatest thing to hear seeing as I've never been able to drive because of them, but there's reasons why most states won't let you drive while you're experiencing seizures until at least a year seizure-free.

    From my understanding, your boss seems pretty understanding (more than any boss I've had thus far). Talk to him/her about it. They're not legally able to fire you for having a disability.

    Sorry if my advice wasn't too much help, but driving seems like it should be out of the question at this point in time.
