First of all if you won't be able to work again apply for Social Security, now not later so you can get covered. Secondly apply for Medicaid if you don't have health insurance. In New York state a variety of eligibility factors, including benefits eligibility makes one eligible for a Con Edison program called HEAP that helps with some of the energy bill. I'm not sure of what programs are in Texas. However, you should speak to your local independent living center. They can help you find out what is out there and apply for it. Here's a link to the ones in Texas:
