Medical bills

Mar 27, 2016 12:27 AM

I feel like in drowning in medical bills. Doctors appointments, pain management, meds. Ugh I'm drowning and we're trying to fix our credit to buy a house and it's so discouraging

I am sorry Cassi33, I am sure it feels like that sometimes. I am sure it is also overwhelming when you are dealing with your illness. And the stress increases your pain. Maybe you need to take a break from them for one day and not think about everything that is due. So you can relax for just one day. Is there someone who is great at scheduling who can be your Master Scheduling and help take over something for you? Lighten your load? I am going to pray God sends you some support. Blessings!

:( I am sad to read this. I hope something turns around for you. You should talk to your spouse about how you are feeling. That's if you have not already. Stay strong :) I know it's way easier said than done.

I know that feeling Cassi. In 2005 we had to file bankruptcy, and it's hard rebuilding your credit. Just as I thought we were going to be paying off some debts and have some breathing room, my doc appts have increased due to increasing medical problems. It makes me feel guilty because my health is draining our finances. I'll be saying a prayer for you. Hugs!! 🙂💕🙏🌼

I agree..I'm to a point where I'm having to postpone medical treatment due to lack of funds my deductible is so high I've got to wait on some surgical procedures. Not to mention the medical bills thatbive already accumulated.

Well on a his note, I realized that the pain clinic booked my old insurance so that's why they didn't pay anything towards my bill. Hopefully an easy fix.

*on a GOOD note

Mar 27, 2016 8:38 PM

Mar 27, 2016 8:38 PM

Mar 27, 2016 10:27 PM

We did get the gist :) I hope it's that simple of a fix!

Thanks y'all, I just want us all to really embrace the love and support here in this group.I use humor a lot but truly not to deflect from the seriousness of someone's personal pain ,but to help lighten the heavy load we all have to bear every single day. Laughing is such an important healing treatment for our souls and our livers and helps with the whackadoodles brains we use everyday. Love , Blessings and faith, Terri

Terri, I know for sure it helps MY whackadoodle brain emensely. I haven't checked with my liver lately but I'll take you're word for it... LOL!! 😜😂😊
