Kinda personal question, which of course can be ignored. But I have been suffering real bad with seizures & Neurological issues for like a year straight now. Long story cut a bit short- back in 1999 i was diagnosed with a rare tumor in my right Temporal lobe of the brain. The original symptoms were massive headaches, dizzy spells and pressure in the head, which at the time i figured i had from boxing. I used to box and train daily from like age 5-30, tons of sparring, real fights and so on. As the months passed i started getting mini seizures, finally was diagnosed by MRI with that tumor. In 1999 no surgeon in las vegas or even the Myo clinic would touch it, they all said the surgery was way to risky. So from 1999-2005 i dealt the best i could with heavy medications and seizure drugs, in sept 2005 i went to UCLA and found a surgeon who was a pro at micro brain surgery, so i took the chance, had succesful surgery and was doing well from 2006 to about this time last year. Anyways the seizures returned last year, been worse and worse each month. I was laid off in June, i'm at the point where now my doctors do not want me driving. And i get seizures 3-4 times a week. So i'm only so so ok like 2 -3 days a week if lucky. I applied for disabilty, have no choice, yet they havent helped- its been like 6 mnths since I applied. All they keep doing is sending me more & more forms to fill out.
I'm just so lost and depressed. We have young children. My wife had her hours cut so she lost our health insurance. We are just about broke. Bank is super low, i have no choice but to get into my storage and sell off like all my toys. Sucks! But it will feed us for awhile.
My question i guess is does anybody here suffer from seizures? If so, what type seizures? Anybody have knowledge of disability? If you dont want to post on here you can PM me.
Please forgive my mistakes/grammar errors when posting, my brain is shot!
