I am a twenty-four year old single mother with dreams of starting a business and finishing college, but this is very hard to do. I cannot even afford a vehicle. It's hard for me to ask for help and I do not expect much, but thought I would give this a try.
I will start out by telling you a little about myself. I began having health problems as a child. I would have severe migraines, but doctors told me nothing was wrong. At 12, I began having seizures. This was a horrible experience, but doctors finally began to listen to me about the pain I experienced. I went from state to state in hopes of a diagnosis, but I never really found an answer. I was told I had epileptic seizures, but the cause was unknown. My health declined the next few years and I was home-schooled off and on.
After my parents divorce, my relationship with the both of them became distant because my parents married too young and now had freedom. I would live with a friend off and on in high school. I was somewhat depressed and had no goal of attending college. A doctor told me I probably would not live until 21. My spinal tap was normal, but he believed I may have multiple sclerosis.
At 17, I began dating someone who took advantage of me and I became pregnant with my son. He is my miracle. Throughout my pregnancy, my health problems disappeared completely. Doctors could not explain it, but let me know there is always the chance of them returning. I knew when I became pregnant with my son that I was now responsible for someone else and I set many goals. I have finished a few years in college and should graduate next year. I have had to take out loans and this worries me.
It has been 7 years since I have had any severe health problems. I'll feel it every so often slightly, but it's night and day from where I was when I was younger. If you do wish to help me accomplish my goals, I will appreciate it so much. I am in college now for psychology and am hoping to help other people.
