Well, in the current episode of Health Insurance vs. Maria, I am very frustrated. After we found out that, because of my condition, I can still be covered by the same health insurance plan as my mom, we are trying to get me back in. In order to get me back in they need another justification from my neurologist, as if they don’t have enough proof that I have epilepsy, to let me back in. After we get that get it, to them and they approve it, who knows how long it will take them to let me back in. In the meantime, we need to find $700 to pay for my next dose, which I need by next week.
We have been moving today, trying to get all the help we can, I just signed up for Univision Farmacia, a service Univision has which offers up to 85% discounts on medicines. After I signed up, I found out they don’t cover that medicine. Vimpat is so new nothing covers it and there are no generic drugs, it’s the really expensive one, or nothing. But I’m still going to check if it covers anything else, any of the other 5 drugs I have to take, and if I can find any other way to find the money to cover the mess my epilepsy has made.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
