    Your schools? If you are already a student then you should be able to get the 30 day residency requirement waived, except maybe school fees for a semester, and get on any low cost housing and MediCal lists now. Definitely call the nearest ILC and find out how to arrive and get housed and cared for if needed. Both states are about equally bankrupt at the moment so state benefits will be about as tight as I've heard from friends who are Flatlanders...
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    The school you want to attend may have someone who can assist you with all this.
    Played with bombs- No SCI, Brain Damage enough that I require a chair and a caregiver.

    Sounds like a great idea to move. You don't want to regret not doing something like this.
    Heard the Berkely Center for Independent Living is quite active...folks there, along with those in NYC and Boston, started the independent living and civil rights movement of disabled persons back in early 70's.
    Also, as someone mentioned, get information from the college you plan to attend - the disabled students office.
    Best of luck to you!

    trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never met

    Find a way to make the move. Even if it becomes a real struggle once relocated in 20 years you will remember it as a great adventure which it is.
