My world just crushed
I turn 60 soon and have been on SSI/SSDI for 10 years for fibromyalgia. Since then, i have had no help as doctors either don't believe in it or just ignore us. I have suffered all these years and just wish this was my last birthday. Fibromyalgia, as I see in many support groups I am in, ruins relationships with family and loved ones. As of days ago I'm homeless thanks to no help from doctors. I seen some hope on the horizon as the Mayo clinic in Rochester Minnesota has a fibromyalgia clinic and research program for us. I was so excited so I called. It sounded great. The first time in 10 year's , someone that cares for us and believes. Even gave me info for housing ideas. They had me fill out the paperwork online and submitted it. I have been so depressed all these years and no homeless because of fibromyalgia. I was ready to hit the road to Rochester, then, the devastating letter in my email a short time ago.

I don't have a doctor or anything. nothing, Nada. I cant find care here. I would go anywhere in the country for help and cant find any doctors that even cares. You have crushed my only hope. No doctor will take me when I say I have fibromyalgia. I need help. I'm ready to just end it.
