I am an RN and was always working, therefore I could afford food. After doing travel nursing for two years, I was dehydrated and malnourished due to stress and no time to eat.
After what was called a stroke, I went on to have seizures and did not work for over a year. We had nothing to eat most days and due to poor water quality, also nothing to drink. I became so weak I could barely walk and some days all my legs did was quiver, leaving me too weak to walk.
I was thought to have MS and have gone back home to get medical care. Now three weeks later, I am eating and drinking and sleeping and little by little, all symptoms have disappeared. So MS or starvation? Welcome to America. I took care of people my whole life, yet when I was in need, there were no food stamps and no medicaid. I have trouble with the law just because I am poor.
