Carla, thanks for sharing. To answer a few of your ?'s, and I am 26 years old, and unemployed ! I regretfully left my last job because I wasn't performing satisfactory. I did'nt realize it at the time though. I was talking all kinds of meds, B/P, etc. for migrains and was blaming that for my tiredness. I was just tired and frustrated about not being able to perform my job to make my employer happy. I just did'nt see the whole picture at the time. When I walked away, my wife IMMEDIATELY made me seek further medical treatment. I am so glad she did, because the brain tumor was found, and was the size of a tennis ball.
Well, it was immediately took out Sept. 8 2006, and then I was blessed with a blood clot the next day, so another surgery took place, and in Jan. My bone flap was replaced with a plate and scews. Ever since my surgery and before I have struggled TERRIBLY with fatigue, and tireness. I can't read very well or write fast and comprehention is nonexsistant. Everyday is a struggle, and depression is showing its ugly face. I want nothing more than to have a job I could do and get up everyday and go, but its just not possible right now. All my experience is in metal fabricating, and welding. Now I can't read a tape measure, or wear a welding helmet. Not to mention my vision is a mess, but I did get glasses to help some.
Other than that life is good, HEY, I am still alive
