I was diagnosed with Lupus two years ago, and while I have stabilized, I still have chronic pain, exhaustion, and arthritis symptoms. I am planning on attending grad school next year in Chicago, and I am worried that I will not be able to work and attend school. I currently have a part time job but I am unable to do any activity outside of the job (or move to full time) because of my Lupus. Does anyone know if I could qualify for disability if I am unable to hold a job and attend school, or does my ability to participate in school automatically disqualify me from any sort of aid?View Thread
