I can not believe how bad things are going for me lately. I am not one to be discouraged, but I am allowing it for tonight,
Went to the doc yesterday because my breathing is not getting better. I was basically told that the lungs are either damaged by stomach acid (this would be an again) or My COPD/asthma is causing permanent damage. I was put on three more meds and have another procedure scheduled. Cost, cost, cost
Today I get a call from my college adviser at Ashford. I found out today that the first two advisers lied to me about the teaching degree I have been working on for the last year. I asked them several time if my degree was for teaching K-12 and was repeatedly told that it was. I also asked about how I would do student teaching. I was told that Ashford would make arrangements with a local college to get the student teaching done, repeatedly. Speaking with my third adviser today, they do not have a teaching degree, I am getting a degree in preschool and they make no arrangements for student teaching because they do not certify teachers. !0,000 dollars in the first year. I have since found out that there are several complaints, a lawsuit, criminal action and a congressional hearing against Ashford's parent company, Bridgepoint for fraud and misuse of Government funds. All this started with in the last year. I have been informed by the government that I can probably get out of the loans, but it may take several months to get done.
I have wasted a year and do not know what I am going to do for a career. I do not want to claim disability yet. I can not stand or walk for many hours because of 3 types of arthritis, bursitis, Fibromyalgia, something called diabetics foot. I have breathing difficulties and other things, but it is the bones, nerves and joints that have me limited....
Enough whining, thanks for the vent session. Now does anyone feel bad enough for me to send a heli...J/k - DO NOT DO IT!
