My migraines are getting progressively worse, and my work environment is going the same way. I'm thinking more and more about pursuing disability, although here in the Bathroom State I understand that can be really tough. My concern is standard of living. I don't have a husband, or a partner, or children -- it's just me. I do have a house & house payment. Would I be able to keep my house? I have a used car and a small car payment, would I be able to keep that up? Could I even afford treatments if I wasn't earning a living and getting health insurance though my employer? Would I have to declare bankruptcy? I'm not even sure if I could afford what it costs to see an attorney to ask these questions.
And yes, my head is hurting as I type. Sigh.
