Epilepsy

#1 Post by Blackbeard »

Hi, I've always wanted to join the army, but have been unable to due to my epilepsy. I only have nocturnal epilepsy and have never had a seizure during the day. I have one roughly every 2/3 years in my sleep and wake up a bit drowsy but am back to normal in no time.
My question is, are the restrictions the same for military police?

In the Army you are often at it day and night, also there can be a lot of stress, this is inclined to bring on attacks more easily
