I have over $140,000 in student debt for two degrees, plus a year+ of other schooling. I recently applied to have it forgiven through the Total and Permanent Disability program. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2004 and hospitalized in 2006. Been fine since, with depression. However, even with a masters degree, I have been having a hard time finding a job and even keeping one.
I’m worried that, if my loans aren’t forgiven, I will not be able to repay. I live on ssdi every month. So, I’m concerned. Anyway, I’m in Oregon and am interested in learning from folks and organizing.
