Medical bills from Schizoaffective

Hello, I have been suffering from mental illness since age 22. I am now 44. From March I have been diagnosed with
Schizoaffective disorder with bipolar. I have taken as described by my community mental health doctor medications such
as Geodon, ability, seroquel, and latuda which are antipsychotics and Zoloft, wellbutrin, celexa, and Cymbalta which
are antidepressants. In September, when my doctor changed the mediation to a high dosage of ability and
Seroquel, I passed out 3 times in the shower and 1 time in the kitchen and suffered several cuts and bruises due to low
blood pressure too much medication.
The paramedics took me to Jackson Hospital and put 2 bags of IV solution in me to
increase my blood pressure. They took blood and urine and a cat scan and saw it was just low blood pressure from too
much medication. Since that day, I have received 3 separate bills from that accident totaling $6763. I don't have any
insurance or job or money to pay for these three medical bills and am humbly asking for help to pay them. If there is
anyone out there who can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. God bless you for taking the time to read my story.

That is a lot of bills and medications you need. Since you are 72, you definitely qualify for senior aid. There are many programs in Texas, and find them here.

Dallas County has a number of churches, charities, and other groups too. Or try Medicaid for the schizophrenia.
