I am getting really worried again. My last surgery was in early 2013, and I recovered better than the one before that, but I am starting to really hurt again and no job / insurance. I am stuck in a catch 22. I can't file for disability unless I'm being treated by a doctor to back my claim, but can't afford a doctor to treat me. My life has been in decline since I was laid off after my first surgery in 2012.
I am really starting to loose all hope, and for a long time was so depressed I could not even try to advocate my treatment. Luckily I found a county based program for medical treatment for no income people. I have my first appointment with them, and my fist doctor visit next month. I really need an MRI, and pain management again, because I am starting have real problems again.
I guess on a good note. It only hurts if I move.
