    Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired

    What is wrong with me? I can think of so many things possibly causing these symptoms, but which one is it? My lymph nodes are swollen (face and neck), I have a phlegm cough, sometimes my throat is a little sore but less so than when I had the full cold or whatever it was (not Covid... I was tested), and I just feel weak.

    I'm not getting enough nutrition, I have an unpleasant taste in my mouth (kind of metallic) and it seems to be coming from a tooth (maybe more than one) which I'm sure is abscessed, my dental health is terrible, this room is horribly dusty, and there could be other reasons. I sit in little light, and don't even look up at the TV much, because I'm sensitive to the light. I keep my phone pretty dim. I'm disabled, and since I've felt so crappy, I've relied on my boyfriend for everything I need, but he gets mad, and I understand money is tight, but I need things. I have to give him a reason for every little thing he doesn't already know, and I get so tired of explaining everything.

    I saw a nurse practitioner two Mondays ago. I mentioned the swollen lymph nodes (but I said, "glands," by mistake), but she didn't feel them.

    I know the brain fog, sweating, anxiety, and other symptoms are withdrawals from Xanax (explained in my previous post).

    I just want to feel good again.

    Paying for an MRI/MRA

    Hello Mighty Community! Does anyone have any advice on how to pay for an MRI/MRA? My roommate needs them. She’s on her parents’ insurance still but no one in her family has been sick this year so there’s been no movement on their deductible. It will cost her 6 months of our rent to get these done, which she can’t afford #ChronicIlless #MRI #Finances #Insurance #Health #Brain #HealthInsurance

    I really need to work
    They just increased some more costs on us
    My husband's job isn't cutting it.
    I am such a mental and physical mess that the thought is stressing me out.
    I really need long term inpatient treatment.
    I really just want to check out all together.

    Question

    Is Your OCD Expensive?

    I need a lot of things, like tissues, disinfectant wipes, toilet wipes, computer screen wipes, extra clothes, nitrile/vinyl gloves, (sometimes multiple) things for certain purposes, because of my OCD, plus I need things for physical disabilities and issues, like bed pads, extra bathroom tissue, dry eye drops, powder/products for sweating and chafing, and more. These are only a few things for each I need, but I don't always have them all. My boyfriend gets mad at me for the things I need, and that I eat out. That's an ocd thing, too, but more of a mental health thing. I don't do well staying in the motel room, even for one day, and I have to wait for him till at least after 8:00 pm most days to bring me a meal (usual Chinese chicken fried rice, and I find Chinese boooring, but I don't want anything the convenience store offers. I also can't eat just anything because my teeth are so bad and missing, plus my body doesn't react well to some foods. I can't cook at the motel because the microwave is broken and my boyfriend has cooked things in there that are a problem for me.

    Anyway, I'm in a restaurant now (another reason I'm limited is, I have to know the restaurant bathrooms aren't a problem for me), and the waiter asked how I was, and I gave a "so-so" hand gesture, and he asked what was wrong. I said, "Money." He said, "Why are you eating here, then?" I don't feel like explaining my OCD and other issues to anyone, plus it's none of his business, anyway. I usually get the cheapest dish, other than soup, although today I got fish, because I was really craving fish. Also, the drinks are free refills. This is my only meal of the day, except for a small snack later.

    Does anyone go through a lot of things because of their ocd, and maybe other reasons?

    Can't seem to get out from under

    I try so hard to get out from under the many challenges of depression and other issues.
    I'm on disability and am started to work part time. I'm in a private type of subsidized housing. My son who has multiple disabilities and now is blind is trying to become independent and move out. He is really struggling.
    I don't know why, but my rent is being raised $50 per month. I'm barely making it financially now. I was badly scammed and had fraud and identity theft be ause I was so stressed out I didn't realize until too late that the people calling and pressuring me were a scam.
    I have severe medical issues that require surgeries and I won't get paid for the time because I'm new and part time.
    I have lost all my friends due to my depression and other illnesses. I have really failed in life. I'm a single mom and have tried hard but failed my son in many ways. I'm afraid we are going to end up homeless.
    I hate the system. I got off it before and I wish I had never gotten back on but I ended up back in the hospital. I am angry at mental illness. I am angry people judge me so harshly. I'm angry at the trap the disability system puts me in.it is so hard to not be angry at myself because I haven't gotten better and succeeded.
    I've been doing this for decades and I am old now, and feel worse in my depression, etc. than I ever felt. I honestly can't think clearly enough about how this is going to work out. I will try to talk to the property manager. The rent will probably go up more because I haven't reported I'm working. I feel like there is no way out and no way I'm going to make it, but that is my depression talking.
    I'm sorry to be a downer. That is why I have no friends. No one wants to be around a depressed person. I'm supposed to be positive. #Depression #alone #struggling #Finances #single mom #Not making it
