  • Rambi and Sarah,

    We have all felt this way. We come here in pain and feeling so alone and needing to find information and hope. Being able to talk to others who are going through this too is such a wonderful support and we don't feel alone any more.

    Some of us stay around to support others who are new and chat with friends we have made along the way. Others get back to their busy lives, which is what we all hope to do.

  • Most insurance policies allow reenrollment or new enrollment if you have a qualifying event (loss of job, loss of coverage, childbirth, etc.) When looking, you may want to see if you qualify for this. You may also want to check into COBRA coverage except that it's usually pretty expensive.

    Good luck and I hope things get better for you soon. Keep your head up!

  • I applied for health insurance through the government site, it said someone from COMPASS will be contacting me soon . I just found out I will be getting LT disability so that will help for a little while . I m going to contact SS and see what I need to do next .
  • Rambi, I really feel for you. I can only imagine what it's like to be "stuck" in the system. I've also head about doctors like the one you had. Interested in cutting only. Is there anyway you can get a second opinion?

    Best of luck to you
