I do not know where to start but I have a teenager
that was diagnosed with epilepsy last nov and being 15 is hard enough( the damage to her brain was caused by rocky mountain spotted fever she had when she was 8 ). I have used all resources I had to help her have a better life and be seizure free. It is stressful enough to live an everyday life but with this comes many things that I cannot do for her. Soon (2-14-07) she will be 16 and of course she would like to have a sweet sixteen birthday to remember but I cannot provide much of anything for her as I am disabled waiting on SS to decide whether I can have the money I have paid in for years denying me again as they say I ccan do something but I cannot be insured under workmans comp so no one will hire me to do a thing as they are afraid something may happen to me while I am on their property.Our house burned 2 years ago and we are recovered from that as of yet and quite frankly I do not see the light of day anytime soon in my life but would like to help make hers better. With seizures and missing school for 3 weeks she still made all A’s on her recent report card which was a high point for her as she has always excelled at school. The medication she has to take has many side effects which one is memory loss so algebra is a challenge each day for her. Somedays she does not know where her seat is in her classes which to her is so hard for she has always been such a worrier.I just need some help in making her 16 th day a happy event.Of course she watches the MTV show sweet sixteen which in this life would never happen to us as we do not know from month to month whether we will have a place to sleep let alone a party costing in the hundred thousands I wish that TV would not put shows on like this as the teenagers in our society do not have a clue would we aas parents have to do to provide for them.Anyway I just need and do not know what is next on our plate but it is full already.
