I've been suffering from pain & weakness in my muscles, bones, & joints for years; I'm only 48 yet act & feel ready for the nursing home.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I'm at my wits end because I've been unemployed, uninsured, and fighting for my Social Security Disability for the last 18 months due to the final straw a terrible car accident that totaled my car, permanently damaged me physically & mentally, I had to be cut out of the car with the jaws of life. I am truly blessed/fortunate to be alive & want to live the best life that I can but I need all the help I can to do that. It's extremely difficult to get quality health care with insurance & nearly impossible without it. I have been diagnosed with conditions that seem contradictory like Asthma/COPD(I've never smoked, drank, nor used illegal substances),Insomnia, Narcolepsy, Sleep Apnea, Shift Work Sleep Disorder, Type-2 Diabetes and prediabetes. I have been getting treatments/medicines from free clinics and hospital charity care programs where & when ever I can. I even contacted the Mayo Clinic, it would have cost $5,000.00 just to be seen but being chronically homeless, uninsured, with no income nor transportation it is extremely difficult for me to get anything accomplished but I have to do whatever I can to get my life back. I have had to give up careers, dreams, & people because of my health. I'm always tired, weak, pained & confused. Also most of my issues can't be seen such as Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis so walking with crutches or a cane gets me very interesting looks. I would appreciate any help you can provide and thank you in advance.
