Epilepsy, When You Want To Work But Disability Denies It.
There are many people who have epilepsy. Some have it worse then others, it is just a fact of life. Sometimes seizures are so bad, that surgery is the only thing that will keep a person alive. The seizures get so bad, a person stops breathing after a seizure. Sometimes one minute, sometimes two minutes. After two minutes, the people in the hospital help you breath. They call it "bagging"
After surgery, the seizures sometimes stop, for a year or so. Then they begin to creep up on you again. Or, you can start to have problems. Some of my hubs have been written about these problems. They can go away or stay. Or new ones come. That is just the way it is.
Back to disability. Disability has a program, that can teach you how to get back to work. They do this for a lot of people. The first thing they do is send a nurse practitioner to your house. She talks to you, but that is all she does. Then she talks to your doctor, and looks over your medical history. After that, she makes a choice. This time, she said "NO". So, I did not qualify for the "Work Program".
But, that will not make me suffer. No, it will not. I have felt bad long enough. If one can wait another year, it is OK. Yes, there have been problems, but they have been taken care of. One more year, is only one more year. No, it will not defeat me! Not this time. I will try again, and again......
