What worries me angryamerican is how you began to have seizures?
I am wondering if the reality of a SHTF scenario actually took a toll on your brain...
Worrying too much about it, inducing more than average stresses, etc.
Or if it was an underlying medical issue.
Either way I have the utmost respect for you and your family.
I see the trials of life destroy the best of families in today's age.
It seems that once you think you're in control, that's when you lose it.
So keep fighting the good fight.
I'm glad to read you are looking at life a little differently now.
Seeing so many people lose their well-being from a loss of income has changed me.
And I am thankful for all the stories that have influenced me to this day.
Prayers and thoughts go toward you and your family.
I hope you can straighten things out.
your a survivor, this too shall pass, and then there is bring it, this i say every day, bad back sore feet, bad eyes, yet i go to work.
so then you have different work, you have family where i have non, make it work no matter how bad they might be , they are your family.
Money? yea so, you had , now have not, been there done that. Your illness this to can be over come, is it diabetic or epileptic? or do you not know,/
It is not diabetic or epileptic It is just called a seizure disorder. They say Ive been having small seizures in the form of twitches. which Ive had all my life. It does get worse with stress and that's what happened. I was stressed at work and that brought on the grand maul seizure. With out know why I am wired this way they can treat but not cure. So even tho Ive been grand maul free 4 and a half months they could come back. I am learning to control my reaction to stress and one way is what I am doing here. telling my story to help others and seeking advise in the process. So long story short no cure it will not pass but It can be controlled.
if not see if your state have some health ins you could apply for , I keep trying, job only offers it to full time employees and the state is closed to enrollment.
I am on a form of state ins. its called a spin down. Once I hit $500.00 in a month then the insures kicks in and acts as conventional ins. My meds alone cost $800.00 a month. So Ive quite most of them the seizure med I will not quite. Its really expensive so I sell things to get it. Last month I sold my race car. This month my race motor and tranny is being sold. month before I sold my hand gun. I am going to write the company who manufacturer it they had a add on T.V. that said if you need help getting your medication contact us for discount offers. I am on permanent disability that's ware $1000.00 a month comes from but it doesn't pay the bills. Rent alone eats $500.00 a month and the two meds that I cant live with out would take up the remainder. So I sell my stuff to get the meds and pay as many bills as I can.edit on 1-2-2012 by angryamerican because: quote mistake.
