Recent Terminal Diagnosis - End Stage Liver failure

I was diagnosed with end stage liver failure in February, unfortunately I have only gotten the bare minimum in regards to my future health plan, how to set up appointments with the specialists I need, prevent the disease from progressing in addition to my heart failure, supportive help/groups, and overall health/recovery/care. #LiverDisease #liver

Has cost/coverage kept you from getting or looking for treatment? Let me know anyway around this.

One of the most frustrating things with looking for treatment is cost In America is it can bankrupt you, or literally be a death sentence; Anyone avoid treatment dude to fear of cost, or been denied treatment due to coverage issues?

I hope you guys are insured!! #MedicalBills

I have Medicaid. It pays for just about everything, but we are a long way from universal healthcare.
How are you guys paying for your healthcare and medical bills? #ChronicIllness #HidradenitisSuppurativa #Disabled #unemployed #sick #Workingwhilechronicillyill


#I Know There Are Good Police - I Watch TV

After #sexual abuse and #Bullying growing up, I met someone #gentle and #Understanding to share my life with. Wonderful jobs, wonderful kids (until they were older, then one wonderful kid), and #autoimmune disease again and again and again. I believe my most recent #healthlist shows 8. At the time that was all I knew. I left a job I adored, I had #mentalissues , and it started to affect me. I had Elliot, my #ServiceDog , many of the #AutoimmuneDiseases affected me physically, too. Sometimes, I just felt sick. My husband had taken 2 jobs to
cover my #MedicalBills , #pharmaceuticals , my daughter was teaching, and at night taking classes for her masters.
The people closest to me, who best understood what was happening with me, were very busy.
I had been a writer once, and I intended to checkout online writing classes, but my computer was hacked. I even had proof, they were so comfortable in my space, they lived there/here for years. I would receive calls from all over the world. One bad day when I was #Feelingsick and fighting the hackers, I finally called the police. In your area this is your only option. I explained what I was calling about, so they would send computer knowledgeable police to my house. Three police were sent over, and the one in charge pulled out his gun on Elliot, when he was quickly standing next to me. I explained he was a #ServiceDog and showed him the cane in my right hand. He threatened to shoot him if I didn’t keep the dog away from him. While I was trying to get Elliot to stay in the family room, which went against his training, the same guy wanted to know what was wrong with me. Who’s still in a robe at noon? I entered the room with my laptop, he jumped. He had no idea why he was called to my address.
I tried to explain why, #WhichMadeMeSoundCrazy ! Hackers? Out of the country? He nodded to one of his men, and that man asked to use my phone while the “Boss” kept questioning about my robe and threatening my #ServiceDog . #IWasInTears ! An ambulance pulled up to the house, and they try to talk me into going with them
where people could help me. I refused. One of the EMT’s watching #TheCrazyLady weeping, in a robe, asked me if I was not going. I said no, which was fine by him, I just needed to release them and he could leave. I signed the paperwork without a glance and tried to throw out the police, too. But they laughed and picked me up and put me in the ambulance. “Bossman” explained I had just committed myself. I heard the 3 police laugh until they closed the ambulance doors.
Absolutely, the police can use some redevelopment.


I have another health issue.... Costochondritis? It hurts to breathe? 😱 I can't anymore, Sick of being sick 24/7, I give up now.

I am broken, not sure if I will be able to keep going. I can't afford to keep paying for doctors, medical bills, medicine, Biopolar meds, costochondritis, chronic pain, headaches, acute bronchial pleurisy, I live in a country where I have no help with medical care from the government. South Africa has 2 choices. 1, you pay for a private medical aid
2. You die
I have paid for everything and am in such debt that I cannot afford to pay for medical aid and now I have to pay cash for my meds and I have been sick for 5 months now struggling with bronchitis, and now I was told that I have #Costochondritis... I can't afford mentally or physically to keep this up anymore. I have to much pain and I am ready to give up. The pain is insanely sore, it hurts to just breath. I can't do it anymore. # #Costochondritis #Bronchiectasis #ChronicPain #MedicalBills #southafrica


Struggling to make appointments. Any ideas? #Anxiety #Depression #MedicalBills #MedicalTrauma #Procrastination

I've been struggling for the last 4 months to make important doctors appointments. I know exactly what is in store for these appointments and I have fears that's I think are keeping me from picking up the phone & calling the doc. I'm sure part of the issue is past financial debt caused by medical issues. I'm also afraid of the pain from the procedure. I can't keep putting this off and finally have the health coverage to help afford it, but I keep "forgetting" . Any suggestions? I need my health back

This cycle of stress

During a very difficult childbirth, they hurt me putting in a second catheter. They kept making concerned faces at each other bc I told them of my latex allergy. The second one wouldn’t go in without two nurses and it was excruciating. After discharge from hospital I tried to heal at home but this pain was worse than childbirth. I have had over 38 kidney stones and this was just wretched. I go to my 6 week checkup and she finds a swollen lump inside one place where it hurt so she referred me to a urologist. The one before wasn’t helping me and this one was nice but still couldn’t help me. I finally get in to have an X-ray and an mri here it is in October after waiting since June and they come back saying I do not have a bladder diverticulum after all and don’t know why I’m struggling from these things besides finding out I have yet another kidney stone this whole ordeal has flared my fibromyalgia and chronic pain not to mention affect every aspect of my life. I got a bill in mail for the mri and X-ray they were $4,320.00 and $884. So now I have even more debt, still struggling, wasted time with all this and it’s months later and still no one can help me with any aspect of my health. Still waiting for someone to help me in pain management, I still waiting for this motorized wheelchair, and still living in an average of 8-9 on pain scale. #Thisismylife #Fibromyalgia #MedicalBills #MedicalTrauma #Cananyonehelpme #helpneeded
