I have a lot of health problems but no insurance

Most of them concern my body. I think I have an anxiety disorder or type 2 diabetes but I'm not really sure of that so I wont elaborate on it.

I have a large case of "gynecomastia" that sometimes burns and it's hard to really lay down with them. It's almost like its a dead weight there that inhibits my breathing, I find myself very restless and agitated in the morning because of lack of sleep. Next I have a rib in my right side that's curved inward and causes discomfort for me every day. Whereas my left side's rib area is flush, this has a drastic V indentation. Next, my stomach caves in... I think it's called a "cascading stomach" from what I read on the internet. Basically it's split into to sections. My stomach from side view is shaped like a giant B with a very large impression between my upper and lower abdomen.. I have to stand to eat or else the top portion gets larger than my bottom portion. I also get occasional heartburn.

I don't want to end my life but I'm not sure what health insurance would accept me knowing that I probably have upward of 20 grand AT LEAST of surgery and medication. I live in pain every day and it's getting worse and I'm not really sure what to do. Do they intend on helping people or making money? I' just turned 19

Dear carlfromwi,

Under the new Health Care Reform, the Federal Government has set up a website, where individuals with pre-existing conditions can get coverage.

You can visit http://finder.healthcare.gov/ and take the following 2 steps;

- use the drop down box to determine your state of residence

- choose "Individual with Medical Condition" tab

After that you answer a few questions and will be able to enroll in a plan.

Sincerely,

Amir Mostafaie
