Hi, I know exactly the problem and let me offer you congrats that u were able to recieve this gift for renewed physical and mental spirit. I myself have been living in a financial and medical hell that I cannot clear myself from. My facial wasting set in 4 years ago, have the hump, front and back, stick arms, legs, etc.... I moved to NC, have been here 3 months and I have tried 2 clinics and I am still waiting for my New Patient appt. at the UNC Infectious Disease Clinic which is not until March 3, 2005. The one clinic that saw me in Dec. could not get me any meds, so the Nurse told me don't worry about it, take a holiday. Well that's easy for her to say, she doesn't deal with the effects of the opportunistic infections. The other clinic "forgot" to schedule an appt. with social worker so I wasted my afternoon going somewhere for nothing just because the employees are not giving correct information. Every month that I have been here, more and more tests, drugs, treatments, etc... are being continually cut so since I am unable to work full time and my income is meager by todays economic standards, I am just a victim of myself and country. Anyway I really am sick of this whole scenario. Some people as always have what it takes, or they know the people, or there is some blessing that provides their needs eventually. My situation has been a slow and steady progression down, and even though I jump through the hoops I am told to, follow the rules, etc... all I seem to end up with is the bare minimum. Crumbs just to exist one more day. This world, life is NOTHING that special that I choose to live this existence. My prayers of one of mercy in death for the torture of everyday survival to end. Wont wish you the best, seems you have it or at least know how to attain it. That's way more than I ever had. I will be HAPPY the day I die.
