I have a daughter who has epilepsy. She is living on her own, no kids, no husband. She keeps herself busy with crafts. She is not seizure free at this time though.
She finds that some of the meds work against her wieght issues.
As for money being tight and working out, I used to walk my kids to school or the bus and the walk in addition to that. Great exercise, with no money.
I hope hanging out here will give you some added friendship.
