I’m Suffering With Migraines and Can’t Find a Job to Pay for My Student Loans. – Tina

“Dear Steve,

My name is Tina, married with a child and a disabled parent. I have a little over $60,000 in student loans because I cannot get a job in this economy. I started online classes in 2002 for CJ. Graduated in 2008 with a BA in CJ. Went to interviews all over the country and here I sit, with my loans.

I recently had a complicated migraine (stroke like symptoms), brain decompression and had a kidney worked on. My medical bills are above the student loans, but those collectors do not call me as often and are happy with any amount of money that I can send them. I am at a loss of what to do. I am to the point of no return. I never thought I would ever feel this helpless. How can I provide for my family when I cannot even utilize my degree to make the money needed?

Can anyone please stir me in the right direction??


Dear Tina,

I’m so sorry to hear you are struggling with this. I’m certain part of your migraine issues are probably related to the stress you are dealing with over this.

Let’s start with some basic information. What school did you attend, how much do you owe in student loans and are these government backed or private student loans?

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.
