In brief: Attitude and control

If seizures are not well-controlled most likely friends and school mates may witness them. That would be bad for "image".
If well-controlled, then nobody but you family and your doctor need know about. In that case your "image" is how you present yourself to other people, which in turns depends upon your attitude.
