Hi everyone! I haven't written in a while. I've been so busy still trying to find help so I can have surgery. Well, I did it! After many programs telling me 'NO' for different reasons, I called my state's Governor's office and 'expressed my frustration'. I told them I was going to the press with the information I had about the 'system' and how it doesn't work for people who really need help. Well, about an hour later someone from the Governor's office called me back with some info. They told me about a program called Access to Healthcare Network. It's a discount program for people who don't qualify for public assistance, but can't afford insurance. I called and got a call back the next day. They qualified me over the phone and I was enrolled 2 days later. Now I am just waiting to find out what day I'm having surgery. Of course I still have to pay my portion up front, so it will take a little time, but at least I found something to help me. Yay!! This is a great resource for anyone else out there who doesn't have insurance but needs meds, etc. I don't know if they have it in every state, but it's definitely worth looking into. Have a great day!!

i made this account because i hope this reaches someone who can understand. I feel immense shame and guilt over my past behavior while manic. I have ruined relationships with friends and family members, gotten tattoos that i dont want, done things that make me cringe. The weight of the self hatred gets to be too much sometimes. I feel like a burden. Nobody understands. I hate myself today.
