Hi guys. I’m new here just wanted to share my story.
I went to sleep on October 30 2015 at just 18 years old everything was normal and okay. Had woken up around 1am that night to grab a drink. I was shaky and jumpy didn’t know why I had never felt this way before. I still went to the kitchen but as I got there something was very off. My bf was in the bathroom and the next thing I knew my body was hitting the tile floor. My arms crossed feeling like they were breaking they went closer in to my chest , I fell straight down. As I woke up I had cops and emts over me. Transported to the local hospital they had told me what happened was they think I had a seizure but weren’t exactly sure because all of the testing had come back normal.

So far my applications have gone no where at the hospitals I applied to. Now I am applying at nursing homes online. I am really getting down with the rejections. But at the same time I just sit in my bed not going out...
I live alone. I am challenged to manage my mental health sometimesmore than others. I can take care of what I need to take care of in my day- and yet right now, I have a disruption to my work schedule and I findmyself having a lot of free time. It's given me pause and time tosee how I struggle to keep from letting my loneliness color and influence mybehavior. I have given up drinking - but I...
