I lost my license once over the seizures. So I went to Ohio and got a license there. Later I re-applied here without checking the seizure box. You’re not supposed to check the seizure box. You’re not supposed to say yes when the officer asks if you are on any drugs. You’re not supposed to say yes when the therapist recites the litany, “Have you had any thoughts of harming yourself or anyone else?” They do it almost in a whisper, as if giving communion, and in their eyes is absolution for the lie they know you are telling them.
