Erin’s mother (Dianne) has multiple sclerosis but doesn’t qualify for SSI (Social Security disability) or Medicare. Her medication costs are so high that there’s no money left for anything else. Her symptoms involve significant diplopia (double vision) and she can’t work. Erin shook her head, “It’s a difficult situation and I don't really know what to do.”
