What for spinal surgery

Post by Jada Kai »

Hello,
I have been going through health struggles since March. Was put on disability on August 1st due to spinal surgery needs to wait for a spinal procedure because my hands and arms hurt and get numb. I indeed have specific nerve issues in my spine. But after procedure didn't work I went to another specialist who was a neuro and a surgeon. He did some physical tests and he said there was something else wrong and surgery won't fix it. So I got tests and my doctor said they were trying to rule out MS but he wasn't happy with tests and thinks I have it.
I'm devastated beyond belief. I have no family. I
just got my life back together. I'm so emotional. I literally have no where to go if I don't pay my rent. I am not being treated appropriately either by the doctor who is taking care of my spinal surge. I have to wait for Neurologist to do that. So I get to sit and suffer. Ideally I would love to get a job working from home. I have to work. I sold my car because its been four months and needed it to pay my costs. My disability is like 2100 per month. My rent is $2250 plus utilities plus cell phone plus doctor co pays.
I cant move again I'm so tired. I've had the most traumatic several years. I'm going to break. I applied through San Diego 211 and even through my disability doesn't even cover my rent, I make too much per there standards.
What I've learned, our system does not prevent hopelessness. How can someone survive off 60 percent of their income. I can't. I'm so upset about this diagnosis but I can't rest because what happens when i use all the money I got from my car. I'm out on the streets or living in a hooker motel. I can't take having to moving I need rental assistance badly as well as a doctor for the spinal surgery
Hopefully once the Neurologist treats me properly I'll be able to work at least. But I have to have the 2 surgeries on my spine. And MS. I'm terrified I can't move I can't get kicked out. I won't survive anymore trauma.
I want to work more that anything buy I'm not healing because I'm freaking out so bad..

Hi,
That sounds intense and we hope you do well through the surgery. We have some programs listed for general medical needs on our site, but of course a specific issue like your requires a medical professional. For the information on free health care programs (general resources), look here.

But there are many government programs and foundations for spinal needs. We recommend you look there for help too, and one good program is the North American Spine Society. https://spinehealth.org/
