Your Care Team
Let your specialist (in my case, my neurologist) know that you are planning on going to college. They have been to college themselves for many years, and know how stressful it can be. They may also want to change your medicine slightly to compensate. However, try to keep them in the loop as much as possible.
My neurologist did not try to discourage me at all from getting my graduate degree. She was particularly happy to hear about some of my accomplishments. While attending graduate school, I was particularly vigilant about maintaining my epilepsy diary. I could then tell the difference between the number of seizures before I started school, and how many I’m having now. My neurologist found this kind of information to be very valuable.
As a side note, some colleges have a student health insurance program. You should investigate it and find out if it will let you see your current specialist with minimal out-of-pocket costs. If you don’t like the program, you should be able to opt to use your own health insurance.
