how Do you maintain medical help when you have nothing?
My adult daughter is married to a real loser. He has addiction issues but she has stayed with him because he has terrific health insurance. Her life has been difficult to say the least, but she has been so sick that she could not afford to leave him. Today he came home from work and told her that he got fired. It was not a surprise to us. She has only a part time job because for the last year and a half she has had a severe Crohn’s flare. This past summer she had surgery to remove part of her intestine. We thought that would be the answer, but the flare is still active, so she has held onto the little job she has because it is something…but certainly not enough to support herself on. He doesn’t have a care in the world. It didn’t faze him that they will now have no money coming and no health benefits. This was the last straw for her. She is leaving him, but that does not help us figure out where to go from here. Have any of you out there been this down and out and been able to get treatment? I am hopeful that maybe now the Crohn’s flare will subside now that she will be away from the abusive husband.
