    ha! You would think so however I can't make more than $150 a month in order to qualify for medicaid in a two family home and I have to be on disability for 2 years before Medicare kicks in. For well over a year I was only getting my child support which is $300 a month and I could not qualify for medicaid because I was $150 over the limit!

    Terrie, my seizures actually started out as night seizures. For the longest I didn't know what was happening I would wake up in the morning simply humiliated because I was a 40 year old woman and I had wet my bed! I didn't even mention it to my doctors for a long time. I started buying nighttime pads and cry every morning that it happened. On my first appointment with the neurologist (after my first tonic clonic at work where they called an ambulance) one of the questions on the paperwork asked "uncontrollable bladder release". I started crying right then and there! For the first time I could see a medical reason for this instead of me just being a crazy woman who wets the bed!
