Every day I am faced with whether or not to go to a scheduled doctors visit or receiving the necessary testing used to treat this dis-ease. My biggest fear is losing my fight because I cannot afford the bills that medicare doesn’t cover. I am talking about the 20%. I have recently received the bills for co-pays and such that is left and I truly cannot afford to pay them. I do not qualify for any other assistance because my husband makes "too much money", yet we are barely living paycheck to paycheck. I can’t be added to his insurance because of my "pre-existing condition". Right now I am looking at a cupboard that is bare with me making "potluck" meals for my husband and three children. What am I to do? If there is anyone out there that has an answer, please help me. I really am at my wits end. Being as though one of the things that this disease feeds off of stress, this situation is not helping me at all.
