3 years ago I was diagnosed with epilepsy. First seizure was a grand mal (forced) and I ended up with a dislocated shoulder at the end of it (didn't hurt that much, very uncomfortable though). I was put on medication which works 90% of the time and is the best medication for me currently available. I have epilepsy in my temporal lobe which majorly affects my intake and application of information on a bad day.
I just got back into working at this company and there is a lot of ground to cover in such a little amount of time. I am usually really eager and quick to get things going and excelling. But, when my medication isn't working that day I draw a blank and all code suddenly eludes me and it takes me a great deal longer to accomplish simple tasks. It's definitely frustrating when people think I'm incapable when on certain days I am exactly that; incapable of thinking properly for at least a couple hours.
I've been working on starting my business working as an independent web designer so I can counter these issues and avoid having to take a bashing for a disorder.
Does anyone else share similar problems? Problems of your own? Resolutions? Feel free to rant. I'm sure I'm not the only one here who's broken haha.
