As long as you keep up on whatever medication they give to you, you really should be okay. Epilepsy, while scary, is luckily very controllable, and so as long as you watch your pills and also make sure you're not doing anything to aggravate it or lower your seizure threshold, for lack of a better phrase, then you'll be just fine. :)
Welcome to the Epilepsy club! I say that because I find that we are unique, fun and quirky people. Now to answer your question. Don't let epilepsy scare you. Most cases can be controlled with the right medications. It might take a few attempts with medications to get the right combinations. As the other people have answered it's very important to take them as scheduled. Also, learn as much as you can! The more you learn the better you will be prepared. I've had Epilepsy and Lupus for most of my life and I still don't let them define who I am! They are a part of me. But they are not my life! You will be ok! Just learn all you can about Epilepsy!
