At the edge and a doorway,TX
Please bare with me on this one.. It is going to be long.. My real name is Vynette Brooks as most of you know and my husband, Darquewing,Jason..
When my husband was still in the military I found out that I had Endometriosis.. I know that this maybe nothing big to some of you, but it is something that is very big and has a affected my life greatly.. I had surgery done to remove most of the problem, but they also found out that I have a hole in the lining of my cervix that they can't fix.. That is not the point though..
They perscribed a shot called Lupron for me to take every month for six months to stop the problem.. That is easy enough right? Now my husband is out of the military and I'm not covered by Tricare (the military insurance) anymore.
Since that time I have moved back to TX and tryed to start a life.. So far so good.. Thank You Alicat for the help that you gave us.. Now we are having another problem.. I can't get insurance.. They put a waiver on it for anything gynocological.. Which means that the thing that I want to insurance for the most I can't have it..
Seeing that we are low on money and still trying to pay for the back bills, the insurance place to me to go to the emergency room at the local hospital.. That was not a problem seeing that I have been in pain since November and no one has been able to do anything for me other than the surgery..
Now let's see if I can make a long story short for the benefit of those who read this.. Hospital sent me to the Community Center, who sent me to the Health Center, who sent me to Medicaid, which told me that I have to be pregnant to get help from them.. Which is the problem that I started with.. I can't get pregnant without help.. I don't understand..
I'm a very upset person that needs help.. I don't understand why there isn't a health system for us middle class folks that don't want anything as big a food stamps.. Just simple medical help for five more months to get this $375. shot.. That's all that I need this for and I think that I have just about tapped out all of my resources around here..
Thanks to my Husband and DreamEvil, I have found groups of ppl that I can talk to when I'm feeling bad, but there is still nothing that they can do for me.. Just to let you know something else, I have started a second job in hopes that I could have the money for this, but the ends don't meet the means..
I think that soon both of my jobs are going to fire me due to loss of worktime.. I can't work when it feels like a steamroller is running across my pelvis.. My husband has had to endure alot and I was just hoping that maybe someone with a little medical knowledge could help me.. PLEASE!!!
I'm down to the begging stage and I never thought that I would have to do that.. I have cryed everynight and I just want a time when I can feel better.. When is it my turn?
If there is anything that you can do please respond.. I really need the help..
Thanking you kindly in anticipation,
Live in my world just once and you'll find yourself enraptured.
