    The reason I could not pass a physical was the fact that the seizures were uncontrolled. I would be on meds for a month and be fine and then end up in the hospital because I had full tonic-clonic seizures. It was to the point that I was too tired to do anything. However, I have taken care of the imbalance and I am not on any seizure medications. Just birth control for the hormone imbalance. Seizure free since Sept.!!!

    The best part is however...I will finally be able to get my driver's license now.

    I wish you all the best in nursing school. Which school are you looking to attend?

    Awesome!!!! Cograts on being seizure free that long! It's actually a huge accomplishment for us!!! The last one was on Saturday, so I kinda keep getting my license taken away. Sucks, but what can you do. Spent some time in the hospital, nothing new.
    I was actually in the Navy for like a month, then I eventually got discahrged for stress fractures.. thank god they never found out about the seizures. So I am going back to school now to finish my pre reqs, then I am thinking about transferring to either William Paterson University, or Felician College. Both are in NJ. Both very competitive also. Worse comes to worse, I'll just get my Associates first.

    I know where those schools are. I live in Westchester, NY and I am hoping to gain admission to the ABSN program at Concordia College-NY. I wish you the best of luck and I hope we both get the admissions news we want to hear.
