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

I love you so much 😃 you are sooo special people... ❤️ Remember that you are love 😍


No support from the South African government #southafrica

It's a great struggle to be a South African citizen with ANY TYPE of disability, mental health disorder or any chronic illness. There is no health care or any real support from the government. I have to pay an arm and a leg for medical aid and ontop of that, I still buy my bipolar medicine as well. I have no idea how I am managing to keep my job, but I can't lose my job as I need the money for my bipolar. I am sadly pushing myself further into the darkness. I tell myself that I have no reason to be sad or depressed. I then feel guilty for feeling that way and I eventually push my feelings into the dark.
I wish I could make the government aware of this problem. I am one of the lucky South African people who have a job to buy medicine. I have a heavy heart to the less fortunate people in the country. They have no support whatsoever.


I want to cut myself again. #Cutting #Selfharm #SuicidalThoughts #southafrica #Durban

I have the urge to cut myself again. I haven’t been cutting myself for a year and 5 months now. I feel like my anxiety is bad and I can’t afford to see a psychiatrist. I have been off medication for 5 months as well. I wish I could seek help. I’m tired. My family thinks I’m recovered from my first suicide attempt 14 months ago. But I still get suicidal thoughts. I don’t want be perceived as a failure to my parents again.
