it sure looks like I am. Over the past few weeks a lot of things. I have SLE, COPD CHF a Hernia, and Hypo thyroid just to name a few. Because of no health insurance I was unable to get blood work that I needed done in a timely fashion and I wound up in a pretty major flare right now. I am shakey to the point where I'm thinking Parkinson's has set in. my hands litearlly bounce up and down I have so much trouble keeping them on the keyboard. My eyesight keeps getting worse and I've been fighting with the doctor's office to sen d someone out to take the blood work from my home. On top of all that I injured myself trying to get my dog from behind the dryer, (don't ask) I am weak, I have problems seeing, there is ice and snow outside and I can't get out to scrape the car off let alone drive to get the work done. Luckilly I now get Medicare and have been working to get some home health set up the doctor's office is fighting with me over that. Just needed a place to whine (vent) because I live alone and was feeling kind of depressed, can anyone relate?

You sound like you need to see a doctor ASAP!
Can you get a neighbor to drive you to the doctor? Or get a taxi to come?
I've see some towns have a special taxi service for people to go to the doctor.
All else call an ambulance and go to the ER.
I hope you can get some help soon.
