littlemaya Posted September 22, 2009 Report Share Posted September 22, 2009 It's been several months since I posted. The plan of action was to seek therapy locally. Since I can't afford therapy, and have no insurance, my only option was through the county.I've been involved with county-based therapy on three previous occasions. Although it's not the best answer, I had determined that it was better than nothing. However, the local office turned me down because I don't have insurance.Since my depression has always stemmed from a lack of options / lack of resources perspective, I've just been catapulted into the stratosphere on the depression continuum. Our government at work. I have had severe spondylitis for 11 years. My entire back is in pain 24/7. I have six compression fractures (vertebrae) and two shattered disks. Since I couldn't get a doctor to understand how dire my situation was five years ago, I had no choice but to quit my job. I've applied for disability twice and for Medicaid twice. Since the government has decided that I'm not disabled, I spend about 18 hours a day in bed, and literally push myself to take care of myself and my husband, a four-time stroke victim. What does a person like me have to do to get a little help? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
