Hi guys, I'm Emmie, 42yrs old and a 10yr sufferer of severe lower back pain with radiation to hips and legs with a new diagnosis of fibromyalgia. I'm in so much pain I feel like screaming - any little thing I do brings on more pain. My injury occured after on the job accident and I have a worker's comp Dr. that doesn't seem to care about what I feel, etc. and I worker's comp won't let me change Drs. so I'm stick with doc and staff that I don't feel the communication goes 2 way. I applied for disabilty in summer and still waiting to hear results but pain Dr. isn't very supportive or caring about this issue or anything. I've been depressed and anxious for months which keeps getting worse due to our money or should I say lack of it along with pain, etc. We are pretty much broke and getting closer to completely broke quick. I pray to God daily and beg Him not to let us lose our home. I want to stay in our home so bad but we are about to be in situation where we can't make payments. The only med. insurance I could find is so expensive I am going to have to let that go in a couple months and be without insurance, can't afford my meds - Oh God I can't take all of this. I feel like curling up in bed and never getting up. I don't have mental or physical strength to handle all these problems, to handle losing my home,etc. I just want God to give my husband a job with benefits that pays enough for our bills and for me to get disability to help pay bills. I feel so guilty that I can't contribute to household income anymore. Everything is just such a horrible, horrible mess. Please pray for me and my husband Tim.View Thread
