I am 31 years old and I was diagnosed with Endo back in 2005 after years of horrible periods and pain. I had a laparoscopy in 2005 when diagnosed. After surgery, I was put on Depo-Lupron for a year and it worked well. Doc wouldn't let me continue after a year so went on another form. Over the past couple years, I've noticed things were getting bad again. I moved to a new city a year and a half ago. Shortly after moving here, I started a job and things were going good, until that dreaded week of every month. There were days I couldn't get out of bed a laid there and cried. Horrible bleeding, cramps, back pain, etc. I ended up losing my job due to missing 4-7 days every month due to this. Well, I now have no insurance and the past 6 months have been sheer HELL. I've ended up in the ER a couple times due to it. About 4 months ago, I started my period and 6 weeks later, it hadn't stopped. The bleeding or the pain. Went to ER cuz I got so bad off, they referred me to a OBGYN near me. I went to her and she said its to the point I need a hysterectomy, but due to no insurance, I can't afford it, so she decided to put me on the Depo shot instead. Unfortunately, it has done nothing. I'm still bleeding, every day, and the pain sometimes is so bad, I stay in bed literally all day. I get so desperate due to the pain, I will take massive amounts of Advil to try to get rid of it. I don't do it too often, a couple times a week maybe. I take about 10-12 Advil at a time. I understand its not good for me but I get very desperate. I've become so depressed with it all, I have thought about ways to harm myself, around where my uterus is, just so they have to take it out. I've never felt so desperate. I'm not eligible for Medicaid or any assistance programs because I don't have kids and because I have a roommate who makes decent money, even though her income has nothing to do with me. She has been nice enough to not put me out on the street even though I have no income and can't pay anything. I hate not working and the person I've become due to this is FAR from who I usually am. So I'm curious is anyone knows of any programs or places that will help someone who doesn't have insurance and close to no income. I know its a long shot but I'm at the end of my rope. I don't know what to do.
