I finally applied for disability due to Epilepsy and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but the process takes very long and even if I'm approved, I have to wait 5 months for my first payment. In the meantime, I have no money,two small children and a husband that could really use my help.
I've had a very hard time with working and my average time on a job is about 3 months. After which I am usually let go for lack of initiative and not paying attention. Does anyone here have absence seizures and support themselves? What kind of work do you do and what do you do about spacing out and forgetting things if it affects your job function?
I would really love to be able to make money to travel and even have a cell phone! lol
