Help!! Going to live on my own soon, any tips?

I don't have my seizures quite under control, so of course I can't drive. I'm going to be getting my own place soon, though, and I'm interested in any tips on living alone with seizures? I have Partial Complex seizures coming from the temporal lobe, generalized tonic-clonic seizures, and psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. I see my new nuerologist next month, but will most likely be living on my own before then.

#ChronicPain I wake up almost every day to my, now, 10 month old grandson. Every day I wake up forgetting I have multiple disabilities. Until I get out of bed. My pancreas is eating itself and I have increasing bouts of low blood sugar & seizures from brain trauma. I have 18/18 on the fibromyalsia scale.
A blessing coming is that I was recently approved for disability. It's bittersweet because I've been a mental health counselor for 18 years. I didn't get my masters 6 years ago to quit! I feel pretty useless most days, even though I try to do as much housework as possible daily.
I'm suffering with depression & anxiety & have been for almost 20 years. 3 failed marriages & one beautiful daughter I am eternally grateful for. I have so many blessings, but I still am so disappointed in myself.
I don't know how to lift myself up even with all of my extensive knowledge of helping others with these very problems! I have severe pain from #ChronicPancreatitis & #Fibromyalgia . I'm constantly in fear of #complexpartialseizures . I'm no longer independent, I can't drive... When does it end! When do I get comfortable with this "new me?"
