I was a substitute teacher for 4 four years, and a special education teacher for 2 years. I recently earned my teaching credential after passing all my exams. The problem is that I've developed a few health issues that has made it difficult or almost impossible to work. The doctor treated me for an existing condition with medication, but I got a severe reaction from it. Now, they are trying to refer me to a neurologist for brain scans and nerve tests because they are not sure what's wrong with me. It has gotten so bad that I applied for federal disability. If I get denied, I will have to wait months or years. For now, I will have to ask kind people to help me out. I wake up in panic almost every day just thinking about how I can't pay my student loans.
I pray to God every single day that I will get better and this is not permanent.
