Hi everyone-well, tomorrow I am going for an interview at a doctor's office. I am so nervous. The last interview I went to, I got so dizzy that I really couldn't do the filing, moving up and down to file. This job is for the front office, but they told me I would be doing "everything". This scares me-the only thing I have done in the past 40 years is teach (taking a break to raise my kids). I don't know anything about working in a doctor's office. But since I've been out of a job since May, 08, I am taking anything-at least trying. But I'm afraid that my balance, memory, concentration problems will make it so I won't be able to do the job. Do I tell them that I have this brain injury, (along with breast cancer, lupus, fibromyalgia, DDD, and Langerhans Cell Hystiocytosis), or not say anything unless I get offered the job. I was originally planning on applying for SDI, but I wouldn't have any money to carry me over until I was awarded the Disability which I hear takes quite a while. Right now I am living on unemployment, and that's due to end. And buying COBRA is taking most of my money. The neurologist increased my Adderall fro 10mg to 20mg, but I haven't tried it yet. I figured I wait until after the interview. But she'd hoping that may help with the attention and concentration problems. Well, wish me luck-I am really nervous-you'd think at 60 yrs. old, this stuff wouldn't bother me, but it sure does. Oh well, I'll let you know what happens-sorry for the long post. Kathy

So my daughter, who will be 30 in a few months, says she thinks she has varicose veins, as she can't figure out what else it could be. Only in one leg, and is so bad it is hard to sleep at night. She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
