In brief: You may not.
Postictal state is the abnormal condition between after a seizure and before returning to your baseline condition.
Impairments may still be present during this state similar to having a seizure. Bumps, bruises, lacerations may be the only documentation of an event if you are home alone. Bathroom, kitchen and general home safety should be scrutinized if you remain alone and independent.

In brief: You may not.
