I have no insurance. I just lost my job a week ago. I’m broke. I’m behind. I have nobody to reach out to. And I’m slipping into something horrible. How do you get help when you can’t afford it. How do you cry out for help when no one takes your illness that seriously. I’m completely alone and I’m completely helpless. Hopeless. I don’t feel like I’m going to make it out of this one.

Hi Sifty!

It’s me again! You can get through this. You’re going to have to help yourself. I know where I live, they have free psychiatric and medical clinics. Look that up and make an appointment. I don’t have any health insurance right now and my husband makes just a little more than the cut-off for any programs or clinics around here. You would qualify. Don’t panic...just look into it. You’re not helpless! Calmly sit down and try to prioritize your needs at this time. Listen to some relaxing music and chill. Let me know how you’re doing...hugs!!

We are never hopeless sometimes that’s all we have. You can make it out of this might not be quick or easy but you can do it. How did you lose your job? And the good news about not having a job you should be able to find at least some medical help and maybe even someone to point you in the direction of a new job.

nobody knows the desperation of being where you are unless they have been there too...I have....more than once....I don't have any quick fix answers for you other than...survival...it's not going to be easy....but have hope in yourself first....believe you can put one foot in front of the other....and try everything you can think of..and don't give up. Something will break....something will work out, it may not be ideal, but something will work out....I know it's hard to believe that now...but it changes....you’re not alone....

Medicaid would help

I am so sorry. If you were laid off , and in the USA, you can collect unemployment, and possible benefit from the Affordable Care Act. It is really anxiety provoking, and it is real. There is no sugar coating it. I hope you have friends and family who can help you through these times. I am glad you came here. I hope you can get some help and of course get another job perhaps something different than this one.
