1806-0941NYI'm a 25 year old recovering from neurologic, musculoskeletal, and urological illnesses from neglected spinal nerve compression for four years. The diagnosis was delayed two & a half years, and yet left largely untreated/under-diagnosed afterwards. I've found competent medical care since, yet still face discrimination and secondary illnesses as result.

I'm looking for help navigating employment & financial needs with a disability at such a young age. Most prominently I'm looking for advocacy as I seek out understanding in my legal options as well as dealing with a family in denial. This denial was a contributing factor to my delayed-diagnosis.

1806-0940OHI am not getting effective treatment to relieve my pain in my right shoulder since April 15, 2018. The preliminary diagnosis is rotator cuff/tricep/deltoid strain. This may be related to a 3 part fracture of my humerus sustained in an accident while teaching kindergarten on May 10, 2017.

This 3 part fracture was treated as a Workman's Comp case. My goal is to receive diagnostic treatment to alleviate the pain in my right shoulder.
