Nadya Suleman wasn't always the 15 minutes of fame type. Before she was known nation-wide as "Octomom", Suleman worked for a mental hospital in 1999 when she said she suffered a back injury during a riot. She later collected more than $165,000 in disability payments and used some of the money to help pay for in-vitro fertilization treatments that produced her first six children. She was once a student at California State University with a bright future, majoring in child and adolescent behavior. She was attending graduate classes when she conceived her famed octuplets.
