Iam a forty-four year old, divorced woman who was laid off a great job in December, just after finding out that I needed surgery on my shoulder and feet to correct the very painful and debilitating causes of arthritis. I am currently working at a restaurant and have been actively seeking a position in my area of expertise for seven months now. My unemployment has run out, I was not able to pay my COBRA, so I have lost my health insurance. Since losing my health insurance, I am not able to get my necessary daily prescriptions. One of the effects of being without my medications has caused the return of my stomach ulcers, which I was just in the hospital for because they are bleeding. The two ways to combat my ulcers is by medication and eating - two things which I am not able to afford at this time. My apartment complex has filed for eviction and they are coming to repo my car - which is the means by which I go to work and make what little money I am able. Any type of advice and assistance would be greatly appreciated and repaid.
