I’d ask your parents for a loan. I don’t like owing money to people, either, but if you need the test, what else can you do? The allowance thing is weird and uncomfortable, I’m sure… have you guys discussed what will happen after you’re married if one of you loses your job? Is this just because you’re not married yet?

BTW, is an emergency loan available from your school?

If I were in your situation, I would weigh the pros and cons. I would decide if the test was something I WANTED or NEEDED. Then I would go from there. If it was somethiing that I merely wanted, I would probably decide that it can wait. If it was something I needed, I would talk it over with my parents.

How would the results of the test change your life? If you found out you had a LD, would that make you do things differently?

Sorry just realized you were more into feeling. It is normal to feel weird abuot it.  Kinda like asking parents for money.  I think it is great that he is so fiscally responsible.  Try to take it easy on him.  He must feel the weight of the responsibility and robably feels bad that he has to say no…for now.

Check with your insurance carrier before seeing the doctor, as most insurance companies doesn’t cover dyslexia or LD tests, as they aren’t considered medical injuries. Also, maybe call the Dyslexia Foundation and the International Dyslexia Foundation, and ask about low-cost testing for adults. It’s possible that there are funding programs out there to help you get diagnosed.

Most colleges and universities have health services for full-time matriculated students. Check and see if your status qualifies you for on campus services. 

Will this diagnosis benefit you in any way or do you want the results just so you know?

This might sound like a silly suggestion to make money, but what the hell, I’m monkeygirl, I can be silly! I have a friend who participates in focus groups to make extra money on the side. I live in Philly, but I know they have them all over the country. My friend does them on her lunch breaks at work, so there is no real time commitment for her, and she has made hundreds of dollars in cash doing them- just giving her opinions on things. Perhaps you could look into seeing if this is a way you can do them in your area to make the money you need for your test. Good luck.
