I'm sure there are resources in your area, such as a mental health clinic or even a general health clinic that could help you see a dr and help you apply for Medicaid. I understand how overwhelming it all is- it's hard enough to ask for help when depressed and even harder still when your whole living situation has just turned upside down.

Go easy on yourself during this transition- if the kids end up watching hours of TV a day, remember that it's only temporary.

Tonia-
I'm in NC, too. I don't know of any support around here, though. Can you do the public aid forms online? I know in IL you could, but I haven't tried here. Maybe if you call your local office, they will be nice enough to help you find a ride? I know in IL they will pick you up if you need them to. You can also call and see if you can go ahead and go to the doctor and they will pay for it in retrograde.

I wish I could help you out. If you are in NE/NC North Carolina, I may be able to give you a hand. Money is tight, but I may be able to give you a ride or something. I also have anxiety disorders. I really need to get to a doctor soon. I have been having a lot more melt downs than I have ever had before.

Let me know here, or send me a PM if I can help you.

Thank you girsl fro teh responses. DH FINALLY took me to get a medicaid application. I am gonna call tomorow and see if I can get in BEFORE I am approved. I am anxious to get help. He is being a bit more honest with me and we are tentaive as friends here BUT yesterday he informed me there is another woman in teh picture. You can imagine what that has done to my depression. Everytime I think of it I either cry or get a panic attack. I cannot live like this. He did not tell me to hurt me, but was being honest with me. i suupose I should be thankgful for that but it has all been thrown at me at once, ya know? I am trying to just take it one hour at a time. Cuz if I try to look ahead even a few hours or a few days I get overwhelmed.

I'm sorry, Tonia. That sucks. At least he was honest, though, and took you to get the application. Let me know if you are in eastern NC and I can give you a hand.

I'm ok, I guess. I just got AF today so it's definitely a "low energy day" today.
