If you have a full time job you won’t receive Medicare. You can receive Medicare w/benefits as long as you work part time or not at all. If you work part time you only get half the amount you would if not working. If I were you I would reapply. Call & talk to a person over the phone for options. Most of the time if you receive disability it’s best not to work bc you won’t get much in the long run.

That’s another great reason to check with a disability firm. The next time you apply for SSI or SSDI, you want to make sure that you have lots of document proof on your Epilepsy. Any and all doctors or specialists who you see about your epilepsy, you need to get everything they have on your epilepsy.

Thank you all for the advice I am trying to finish school. Also my doctor is still in Virginia. But he did give me another doctor to see down here. Also I think am going to have to look for a law firm to go and see and talk to them about what is going on. I'm trying to get my life back under control again with my memories and money.
