Oh, forgot to tell you all, I have fibromyalgia, Osteoperosis in my lower back, hips and shouders, high colesterol, high BP, an enlarged liver that no one seems to know why, no deaseses of any kind that would make it that way. Sleep apnea, and blood coming from my kidneys into my urine. I Got my Disability last july, and on the first of this month, the state took away my medical insurance. So I guess, no more meds, no more Dr appointments... I guess, I will just lay here and die.. heck what do they care it ain't them.. I also have Brain fog, which just means I can't remember everything, so probly have forgotton something else that is wrong with me.. what the heck..

Hi Fibroangel,

Welcome to the depression forum. First of all, why did the state say that they were taking away your medical insurance? They have to give you a reason. That really bites. That just doesn't seem fair. Did they give you an explanation? There are other programs that you can look into. I am sure that they made sure not to mention that. We have one her in Michigan called tencon. It covers medical and prescriptions. Thing is that they don't tell you about it. You have to enquire. But if you don't know about it, how do you know to enquire? They just like to make it hard for people.

There are also prescription companies that will give you your brand name meds for free for awhile. I will find the site for you. I can get it off of panic and anxiety forum. The moderator there has the site for free meds. I think it is "needymeds.com" or something like that.

My sister was getting blood in her urine. They thought that she had kidney trouble. But it ended up going away after she had a surgery called a rectacile or something like that. Basically her organs were falling. They had to tie them back up. So this is nothing to take lightly. You are going to have to look for resources so that you can see a doctor.

I find that doing puzzles and word games helps my thinking. There is also an herb called ginko biloba that helps with the functioning of the mind. With memory. It isnt' too expensive, so if the brain fog is becoming a problem, check it out or try it. It does take about a month to start seeing a difference.

Do check out the fibromyalgia forum. There are a lot of wonderful members there as well as here.

Many mental health facilities work on a sliding scale, which means they charge by your income. So appointments can be very little cost. Also you can get samples for meds. Which would save you on prescriptions. Be proactive, search the internet and find the low cost meds and programs that will take the place of the medicaid or which ever you had for insurance. If it wasn't medicaid, do sign up with the department of social services.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen

I too am on medicaid. I live in Illinois and every year we have to qualify again meaning we have to submit all the paperwork, income records, etc. We usually get the notice about 2 months before things are due.

One time though we were booted off because someone called the state and reported us for fraud. All we got in the mail when that happened was a letter saying our medicaid benefits were canceled. It took a lot of doing to find out why. We got them back but ended up having to jump through a lot of extra hoops like sending in tax records, bank statements, etc.

If you think you should still qualify for medicaid in your state I suggest you apply again. It is also possible that you may qualify for Medicare since you are on disability. I suggest you also look into that.

thanks jim1969, thye say my husband makes too much money, that is why they kicked me off, but my husband thinks it cost too much to put me on his ins. so I just dont no what to do, I guess get a Divorce.. and move out on my own.. heck probably be better off anyway, he makes fun of me for taking my meds anyway, calls me a drugy.. makes me feel bad... I have such bad depresstion anyway, just makes it worse.. the fibro and brain fog, oasteo and other things are enough without having him not support me trying to get better...

I am sorry that it has come to this. Your husband should put you on his insurance. It would be cheaper in the long run. Does he help pay for your meds and doctor's visits? Don't stop going. It sounds like he is not taking your health seriously. You have got to get him to though. Let him know it is important for you to have your medications. But see the doctor even if you have to make payments or save up for the visits. Your health is important. Many scripts are cheaper if they are generic. Many pharmacies have 4.00 prescriptions. Just don't give up hope. Know that we all care...

Hugs, Karen

my husband doesn't care about my Dr appointments. He would rather I not go. He would rather I not take my meds. Heck, sometimes I feel like he would rather I not be here at all. He is a hard man to talk to, the kind of man that thinks he has to be right all the time, and I am aways wrong no mater what, and I am tired, really tired, and don't want to argue over this. I would rather just leave and get it over with. I can't win either way. cry At least if I leave I can get my Ins. back, maybe... and go back to the Dr.s...

Maybeit would be in your best interest to leave. It sounds like you will be better off financially to have insurance and drug coverage. You have to do what is right for you right now. Even if it means this. I am sorry that you are going through this. Know that we stand behind whatever decision that you make.
