I'm 28 but will be turning 29 soon. And throughout my life I've had only 4 jobs. And all of them I've not kept all because of my health and brain condition. The job is either too hard, I started getting headaches, or they got too strenuous for me to keep so I had to tell my boss I had to quit. And I know that doesn't look good on a professional resumè. (I can't help that though). So my question is...Are there other people like me out there going through the same issues I'm going through? or am I the only one? I've met only two other people who have Hydrocephalus like me but they were able to maintain a steady job far longer than I have...which 1) confuses me and 2) lowers my self-esteem. I would just like to know at least ONE person who is having the same difficulties and hardships as me. Alright, that's all. [insert Charlie Brown's sad expression here]

      Everybody deals with this condition differently, and we all struggle with jobs at some point. Memory issues certainly don’t help… but I’ve held steady jobs bc I didn’t know anything was wrong with me. Even joined the army and passed basic training miraculously! (Even though I should have known something was wrong)

      Yes I’ve had hydrocephalus since I was born and I was able to hold a job up until I think it was 2016 I started having other medical issues besides the hydrocephalus that made it to hard for me to do my job and be on my legs and feet for long periods of time.
