I am currently on disability working hard to get off with a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia.

9 years ago i was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic working as a delivery driver. I was forced to quit work and battled with my horrible brain illness. With medication, counceling, and family support i have finished my undergraduate degree at IUPUI University in Indianapolis online. I took online courses because my disability makes it tremendously difficult to make friends, socialize, and be in large groups of people. To finish school i have incurred large sums of debt via student loans. Now moving forward i have decided i would like to overcome my obstacles and work in Cardiac rehab helping those with heart disease and heart attacks educate themselves through diet and exercise to continue living long, meaningful lives. To accomplish this i have entered graduate school at the Univeristy of Akron majoring in Exercise Physiology. So far i have a 3.9 gpa but struggle with the classroom format. Being in large groups of people can be debilitating to me but i continue to push forward. As i do i continue to incur student debt, all said and done over $50,000 worth. I am fighting hard to get off disability and to re enter the workforce. However the compiling student loans that sit over my head make my fight even tougher. I am looking for help and donations to reach my goal and help pay down my student debt so i can fight my daily battles as they come without the fear and burden of debt over my head. With my graduate degree i hope to overcome my fears and paranoia and return to work, society helping others as i go. Your gifts and donations will be greatly appreciated and put to very good use, Thanks for Reading.
