please help im in so much pain
I am a 28 year old female diagnosed with degenerative disc disease, 2 disc bulges, and spinal stenosis. There's more. But I shall get to the recent. I was admitted into hospital by ambulance last night with a ruptured disc. I can't think straight I hurt so much. My knees are killing me, my hips and butt are numb and tingling, my back is in so much pain. These symptoms are all day everyday. Its been two years since I worked, I've been denied Ssi 5 times for my age and work history. I can't take care of myself or two kids. Everyone I used to know is gone. I don't have mom or dad or anyone. I'm really hating my body and my life. What do I do. I have no insurance. I just got done being Homeless for a year on the street with my kids. My son has Psychiatric problems at 7 and is on Disability. Its just so much pain in everything every part of my life has changed. I'm so alone
