I work full time at a doctors office as a nurse.i love my job. I'm also engaged to a great great guy that doesn'twork who waits on me hand and foot. .he helps with the kids tremendously..they aren't even biologically his but he's amazing with them. . He has epilepsy which is why he doesn't work. It's hard to deal with. But sometimes I just want to vent about my day or have adult conversation but it's hard with him because of his epilepsy. Right now he has no insurance but we are going tomorrow to a neurologist that his parents are helping us pay out of pocket for. But with no insurance they can't do much other than write prescriptions so he has his meds.. I just hate it.i hate that or whole lives have changed.he's worth it but sometimes I wish I had one person to understand why epilepsy sucks for me. I know I sound selfish...but I just needed to vent so bad.

He would be perfect for Obamacare. Have you looked into that?

We are trying. Apparently since it doesn't effect their lives they like to take their time.

So, you're an MA, not a nurse?
