I don't even feel like writing this.
I don't even know why I am, but I am.
I don't feel like explaining my situation much, I made a thread a while back on it.
http://www.wackbag.com/showthread.php?t=62284
The docs at first said tumor, now he thinks it could be something called Wegener's which is really bad inflammation. I also have some kind of "sinus disease" they said.
Anyway, I'm in pain every day. Some times it "swells" up really bad and believe or not the pain gets worse. It's never been this bad before though.
I can't move my eye all that much, there is now some sort of fluid filled bump on the eyeball itself.



It's gone down a little since I took the picture about a couple hours ago.

I really don't know what going to the hospital will accomplish. I'll be over there for god knows how long, since this is KY I'll be treated like shit and not be given anything for pain other than some non-narcotic analgesic.

I have no insurance.
I haven't been able to work for a year so I have no money. My last surgery took everything I had saved, I even had to sell my car to pay for some of it.
The doctor who did my last surgery says I will either have to have more surgery or possible radiation treatment. I have no way of affording either so I guess I'm just fucked. I could either die or lose my eye. I don't know what I'm going to do.
To top it all off, tomorrow is my birthday... some fucking birthday...

Go to the hospital. Take it from somebody, who didn't listen to his body and is now paying the price for his stuborness.

Little known fact about medical bills:

While they affect your credit score if you don't pay them, most creditors won't count the debt against you.

What that means is if you're afraid of the bills if/when you need to get medical attention without insurance, you can just not pay and it won't affect you neary as much as say, a credit card collection or a repo.

Don't let finances stop you from getting medical help.

Your health is too important to fuck around with ... go to the hospital and worry about the bills later. The hospitals will usually work with you on setting up a payment plan. Do you possibly qualify for Medicaid?

The bottom line is you gotta get your ass to the hospital!!

Before going to the hospital, get a perm and then rub yourself down with shoepolish. You'll get right in.

get off this board , just checked to see if you were on , and go to the hospital. Fuck this place for a while, it'll be hard to read the board with only one eye and GL. worry about the bills later.

Go get help. Alot of hospitals if they know you can't pay will give you a break and wipe the bill off the records. I was having a tough time with paying my wifes second child birth(two back to back) and they wiped the second births bills off my total bill. They will help you. Just stop being dumb and get fixed.

your crazy for even making this thread. if you have to ask a bunch of strangers that means that you think you should go but don't want to. do yourself a favor and go to the god damn hospital.

Get your ass to a hospital. Either that or become a pirate. You'll get 20 gold pieces if you lose an eye and a bitchin patch for it to boot.

Get a snake bite kit and suck it out. It works for zits. Get your ass to a hospital .Don't worry about the bills as was said before if you have to file for bankruptcy so be it. Your health is more important then bills.
