I am being treated for epilepsy, but am still living with uncontrolled seizures. Should I see a specialist?

Teenager with Epilepsy

My 18-year-old has epilepsy and says it’s no one's business except her own. She plans to work full-time as a camp counselor and is then headed for college. When she was young, I would inform the people who I thought should know about her medical condition. But what now? When is it important for her to disclose her condition and when is it OK to keep it private? How can I help her be more accepting?
