Job!?I do have a question, has anyone gone on disability with POTS?
I cannot hold a job down, and am in dire need of money, all the time... For food, bills, and such, I know I am young, but I need the money..
I cannot log into my old account which this is my story, I posted it before.
Back in Septemeber, I woke up one moring, with stomach pain, thinking maybe, I was just being a woman, I went on with my day, went off to school, in progressivly got worse, I couldn't stand anymore, I called my mom and made her come get me. I ended up in the hospital for the first time THAT DAY, for pain, I went home, all drugged up, and started fainting( I fainted a lot before, but my doctor kept saying all teens did), my mom concerned took me back, but to a different hospital, who told me "You're perfectly healthy". Inside I felt my body shutting down again. I ended up going home that day, and only on pain medicine, I passed out everyday after that, I went to about 25 differnent doctors, trying to figure out "what is wrong with me". I finally fainted in front of the office staff at my school, and ended up in the hopsital again. After about twenty minutes of throwing bigeminies and trigemines (sp?) I was admitted into childrens of Detroit Michigan. I was there for a week until the finally diagnossed me with POTS. I got on a few pills, which didn't help at all, I was still fainting all the time, ended up in the hospital a couple of those several times. During all this, doctors kept saying "its all in your head". This week, I was out on a date meeting my boyfriend of a years family members, I still had to meet, and I fainted once, right in front of them, they wanted to take me to the hospital but I told them this is a daily thing, don't worry about it, I'll be fine. I was out for a minute then. About twenty minutes after that, I started vomiting, and fainted again, him and his family afraid took me straight to the ER, which I didn't even get into a room, I was in the hall, throwing bigemines, countless amounts of times, along with trigemenies. Doctors were so rude, didn't even care. I have had constent chest pain since that episode, I have been passing out constently, and this monring, I had to resign from my job. This is ruining my life, but all but two doctors are saying its all in my head. I am become upset. I have lost almost all my friends, and am scared too loose my life. Does anyone have any advice. Help me out?
I'm only eighteen and already dying?
I currently was moved out of my house, and have 0 money, to afford a new house, I am living with a family friend, but they want 500 a month, I need help.
Has anyone filed for diasbility!?
