I'm so sorry you're going through all of this. We're here to help any way we can. You said your daughter is in college. I would recommend checking her college to see if they have a counseling program. My daughter goes to her old college for counseling and they work on a sliding scale depending on how much you make. If you have no income it may be free. Have you tried getting medicaid? I know you applied for medi-cal. Sorry, I've never heard of that. You may be denied the first time but don't give up, keep applying.
