About seeing a specialist.

How do I start getting all this stuff done? I have no insurance, no job, and specialists have told me they will not see me without money. They wont even let me make an appointment for pain that I HAVE daily. What am I missing? WHere do I go? Who do I speak with?

To add to sassiegirl1952's excellent suggestions, check with your city and state to see about medical coverage for the unemployed/uninsured. Most states have one or more plans to help out. You can get treatment at a cost you can afford.

Meds can often be had for free b/c most pharma companies have programs to provide meds at no cost to unemployed/uninsured people. Just make sure you ask for it. Some clinics, hospitals, or doctor's offices forget about this option.

Right now my wife works three jobs; two of which have her driving and working out of town, while the other is at Walmart. We have ONE car, and no extra money at all. Taking her to work and going elsewhere is out of the question, and right now losing one of her jobs would RUIN us. Right now the only way I can bless my family is either going back to work, or sitting down and shutting up. And until the former works, the latter will have to do. I know of no scans, or where they are, and my computer wont let me put them on for anyone else to see to help anyway. I find no companies to help except with my insulins; I have already been reusing my needles (2) for the last 60 days or more. Im not going to start counting on people for my neck and brain and then have them tell me they need money again before they can "do anymore".
When someone has a name, or a doctor, or a SOMETHING please let me know. I will be around.
God Bless.
Peace out.
