The house is mine, I have lived here since my first husband and I bought it when I was 19 years old.
The company my husband works for does not provide insurance, and he has type II diabetes and has a little policy for catastrophic illnesses such as cancer, heart attack and such. He only pays $300.00 a month for it and allows 5 visits per years. But if I don't have a job, it will be very hard for me to pay for even that. I a little less than 2 years left to pay on my house, and a little less than years on my car note which is $465.00 a month, so I am praying that the good Lord will help me till then.
I was always a go getter. When hubby #1 ran off, I worked two jobs for 8 years. Now, I don't know how at my age and health I could find a job. If you wonder why we don't have savings, it's because we fought for custody for hubbrs 3 children, who were living with their mother in squalar. We had to also add a bedroom on to the house to accommodate these children as my house is small and I only had two bedrooms.
So much for the soap opera, I never thought my life would be this way. I remember taking phone calls from women who had been batters and had nothing, but most were young enough to recoup, at least I pray that they did.
I don't know if I should post here, or in the fibro forum, as I know depression and fibromyalgia go hand in hand.
I know nothing about pain medication, except I take the tramadol and the last few days, I am taking only 1, three times a day, preparing to possibly switch over to Prozac, as this wellbutrin, is kicking my fanny, keeping me up at night and causing me more aggitation. I am also thinking of getting off the Lyrica as I need to think generic, and inexpensive.
Any suggestions for pain meds for me to take occasionally, only when I am really hurting, that will allow me to function working an 8 hour a day job, and is generic. I also found on thus site drugs.com, and it's quite helpful with drug interactions.
Thanks to all of you for your replies.
