    I'm so sorry Kevin. There's not a whole lot I can say but keep checking into the government insurance available to you. I'm not sure if you are able to lower the amount you get to make sure you are eligible for MediCal/Medcaid but it's worth looking into. Keep looking forward to the day you feel better and are back on your feet.

        I can't add much more other than I'll send some positive Karma your way and lots of :squeeze:

        Sometimes it seems like everything in life is conspiring to bring us down all at once. The important thing is to hold on and keep moving forward. It may take time but one day you'll be on the other side of this looking back and things will be better. You just have to hold onto moving on.

              Kevin, none of us can say we know what you're going through. But many of us have had a lot of similar things in our lives, so we do understand the stress of your situation and the occasional feelings of hopelessness. There are advocates for the sick and disabled out there, please see if you can get in contact with one so that they can help you find out what you're eligible for and how to obtain it. Try to rest as much as possible and take care of yourself. And if for any reason you need to talk or vent, feel free to PM me.

              Know that we care about you, and want to help you get through this. We are like a big family here!

                I have always believed that everything works out. And when it isn't, well, then it's not over yet. Then it will work out.

                Sounds simple, but I'm a simple person. You are on a path where the end is not defined and, frankly, it's hellishly scary. I cannot say I know what you are going through.

                But I can say thank you for talking with us. Your trust shows in the details you supply and we are honored. I know I am.

                You are in my prayers and meditations.

                Tell us, is there more we can do for you? We're always willing to listen.

                Peace. Hang in there.

                  Kevin- Man, what can one say? I am in a hard place in my life also, and after reading your blog I need to be grateful. I will pray that God gives you the strength to make it thru this. I know for myself that what I am currently going thru is one of those trials. It has forced me to read more scripture, talk to God more, vent my anger to Him, cry tears to Him and smile to Him. I don't know when it will be over or how I will make it, but I do know that I need God every step of the way, every blink of my eyes, every hour of the day. I too, am usually the strong one in my sphere of friends. So its funny for me to "live what I have preached" to others!! So, I am not in a position to say nothing to you except, from one human being to another, hang in there, and thank you for putting my head in the right place. Kevin, you remind us all that everyone, everywhere is special. Pray for the strength from God to not allow anger and resentment to fester in you. I don't know why you are going thru what you are going thru and I won't pretend to act like I do, but I do know that your blog, right now, is reaching people and changing lives!! And that my friend is good!!

                    Re: I'm going through a hard time right now

                    Thank you all very much for your kind words.

                    Things are still at a standstill. I am still arguing with the state of Arizona over my healthcare, but mainly because they keep telling me different things every time i talk with them. It's frustrating, but it is the government, what else should you expect!

                    This week I am going down to the Mayo Clinic for some blood work and a CT scan plus meetings with a few other specialists on my team. Then Monday I get go and get fluid drained from my abdominal cavity, so I got that going for me. Who needs Disneyland with that!

                    Again, thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and kind words. One thing I have learned through all this is who I can call my true friends and family and you are all on that list. You all have made a difference in my life and my outlook on it and I have always believed that if you can say you did that at least once in your life, then you have led an awesome existence. Thank you all so much for everything. You are all some of the better angels of our nature!

                    I will continue to keep you informed of what happens next!

                      Not sure what you consider a friend but there are many kind, considerate compassionate people on this website. While I am familiar with MediCal, MediCaid works pretty much the same. You should be able to find a counselor to help you and show you what would allow you to qualify for coverage.

                      Also BIG TIP! The doctors and hospitals that you are using want to get paid for their services. I would check witht eh hospital they are affiliated with or the medical group, they have people who coordinate government insurance and should be able to help you obtain coverage.

                      Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or just post in this thread. I may not be able to solve things but I love pointing people in the right direction that aren't familiar with government programs or other options.

                      I'll wish you all the best.

                          Update:

                          Just hot back from the Mayo Clinic where they took 9 vials of blood and did a CT Scan. When i got there i had appointments with a surgery RN, an Endocrinologist and a dietician. Planned to be there all day only to find out that the three appointments had been canceled because my lovely AHCCCS denied my need to see them. Oh and Mayo didn't think to call, write or send a singing telegram to tell me they were canceled. Next week I got an appointment with the head of my "team" and a patient services counselor. I plan to talk to both about what to do next.

                          Any suggestions?

                            Things will get better, Even through the darkest night, the sun will shine in the day once again. My thoughts are with you, and hope things start going your way once again.

                              The patient services counselor is employed by the hospital and is there to help. They want you as a patient so they want to make sure you are able to obtain coverage. Write down A LOT of questions so you'll be prepared when you get there. Ask about available coverage for disabled, low-income and charitable organizations that are able to help. Dealing with this person should be MUCH easier than going to Social Security or calling 1-800-MEDICARE.

                              Be prepared when you are there, that person want to see you covered so they are your ally. If you get angry don't take it out on them.
