So glad I have found this community! I have been searching for weeks of someway to help my dear friend: She is 38, a single mother of 2 young children and has Fibromyalgia. Her pain is severe and frequent; To the point that she lost her job a year ago. Due to the pain, she has not been able to find long-term work. Doing things from home in order to try and make ends meet, just isn't enough. Therefore, she can not afford health insurance and has not seen a doctor or had proper medication in over 6 months! When filing for disability, and was denied. So my question is... What can she do??? She has tried all other means for pain management. Some seem to work, just not as much as needed. The pain keeps her from being able to even cook for her children. It breaks my heart!! Any and all suggestions/ideas are welcome and appreciated.View Thread
