Good for you. I would look into getting SSI too. Your best bet is the Social Security office nearest you because their 800 # is useless I've found.

Have you tried visiting your local health department? You should qualify for disability or at least SSI and you could still possibly keep a full time job. Working with epilepsy and tourettes is not only hard. It's dangerous. I hope everything works out for you.

My brother will turn 19 on June 25. He had his fist zesuire when he was 13 and has had 3 more since. He hates it & doesn't talk about it. After it had happen & he was still in pain he would pretend to be okay & wouldn't let no one help.
