I have been dealing with several conditions since 2005. Spondylolisthesis, Spondylosis, Scoliosis, and Lumbar Spinal Stenosis with synovial cysts. By the time I was diagnosed in 2006, I had lost my job and my insurance causing me to not be able to afford care since 2007.
I have been dealing with chronic pain since, holding out for Obama care so they couldn't exclude my spinal condition from Insurance coverage. Well, now my spine won't be excluded but because I haven't worked since 2006, I can't afford insurance coverage. I am not on welfare or Medicaid either.
The past 10 days my pain level has increased exponentially and I can no longer tolerate even sitting still. It just hurts so bad, no matter what I do, how I sit, stand, lay. To be honest I just wish I was dead. Not sure what the emergency room could do to help but I have got to do something. What are my options?
