I have been diagnosed with dementia syndrome and depression. I am 59 years old, recently fired from a 10-year healthcare job due to poor performance. (I was on overload).
I am feeling better recently, and I am wary about trying Celexa, recommended by Dr. I have times when I forget names. I especially have problems with too many things at once. I had an accident the day prior to neuorological testing where I hit my head falling forward in a restaurant. I am keeping records regarding the accident and and the claim. Money is somewhat a problem since I am not working, but so far I am doing well. I will most likely move in with my partner, ( I have been staying with him since I was let go from the hospital job). There is some tension with the new living situation. I have insurance through Cobra. My daughter is 350 miles away and my son is in college, two hours away finishing his last quarter. My ex-husband has also been helpful. I want to stay as productive as possible. I have also been told that I may qualify for unemployment and possibly Disability. Any thoughts on my situation?
