Depressed...Does Iowa Care????
Alissian posted:
Still battling depression and anxiety here with little support no ins and no money. I am lucky to have love and support from my fellowship of AA, Na and Alanon. Does anybody know anything about the changes happening to Iowa Cares Program here in Iowa? I am hoping they will allow me to go to Dr locally and probably too much to ask to get some mental health coverage! Was hoping Obama care would ensure we ALL had ins so we All can get the help or treatments we need. I am doing a little better than I was and still clean and sober but really struggling just to take care of myself and get anything done. I called to Dr today to inquire about paperwork I sent there for some free meds thru the drug company and nobody has any clue what I am talking about! Grrrr:( I can hardly focus well enough to fill out any paperwork or do any housework. I pray for an angel to help me and just keep trying to do what I need to do. Thanks for listening:) Hugs.
