I am 23.
I hac a seizur when I was 7. After that I would have horrible blinding migrains every few weeks. It was concluded that I have calcium deposits in my brain.I was seizure free untl 2 years ago. I started having seizures out of the blue. I had 2 ER visits bc of seizures. I have both grand mal and focl seizures.
Now I am in a rough spot. It's just one thing layered on top of another..
I can't drive, so I can't have a job & I can't get to school if I don't stay in a dorm. Since I cannot work I cannot afford to stay on campus.
(this tax year I field as independant, so fingers crosses, I might qualify for a grant). Right now I am taking two online classes at a locat tech. They are pretty much pointless classes. I am just taking them singe grace period on my loans won't run out. I just need my 1 last class in my major to graduate. ...
I can't drive, so I can t keep a job. Not having a job means I can't pay for school & I can't pay for dr visits and tests.
Friends and family have paid for several dr visits. But money is thinning out.
I need updated scans - I havnt had any in the past 2 years. I have new seizure related activity happening. I now have spells of double vision. My dr said it could be somthing as simple as a migraine or something more serious like a tumor or new calcium deposits.
I have applied for disability twice. I was denied both times. I have no idea what to do now. I need to find a way to afford my medical needs. Any advice is welcome. I do get my medication at a discount price. I am more concerned about paying for dr visits, tests and ER bills.
