    I am not this way, usually. I am not desperate, usually. But the simple fact is that I have Addison's Disease. Addison's simply put is a adrenal deficiency, and it can be deadly. Recently I was laid off and while I was looking for work my Cobra cost became untenable. Like $800 dollars a month. I lost it, and now I need treatment I can not pay for. Please help. More on the flip:

    This is hard for me, but I am posting my MRI record for all to see so you can believe me. This is what I am dealing with:

    Patient Name: T. H. BENNETT Patient Loc: ER
    Med. Record #: 70215 Patient type: ER

    MRI BRAIN WITH AND WITHOUT CNT

    MRI OF THE BRAIN

    HISTORY: DIZZINESS WITH IMBALANCE. VOMITING WEIGHT LOSS SEIZURES. SYNCOPE.
    VISUAL CHANGES. RIGHT HEMIANESTHESIA.

    MULTIPLANAR MULTISEQUENCE IMAGING OF THE BRAIN WAS PERFORMED BEFORE AND AFTER GADOLINIUM ADMINISTRATION 2/23/2008. THERE ARE NO AREAS OF MAGNETIC SUSCEPTIBILITY EFFECT WITHIN THE BRAIN PARENCHYNA TO SUGGEST PREVIOUS HEMORRHAGE OR HEMORRHAGIC CONTUSION. THE VENTRICLES AND SULCI ARE WITHIN NORMAL LIMITS IN SIZE FOR AGE. THERE IS SLIGHT ASYMMETRY IN THE LATERAL VENTRICLES LEFT LARGER THAN RIGHT WHICH IS WITHIN THE NORMAL RANGE OF VARIATION. SIGNAL VOIDS ARE SEEN IN THE DISTAL VERTEBRAL, BASILAR AND CAROTID VESSELS. THERE IS NO SUBDURAL HEMATOMA OR OTHER EXTRA-AXIAL COLLECTION. NO ENHANCING ABNORMALITIES. THERE ARE SOME FOCAL AREAS OF ABNORMAL SIGNAL IN THE BRAINSTEM, CEREBELLUM OR HEMISPHERES SUGGESTIVE OF BACTERIAL MENINGITIS. CRANIOCERVICAL JUNCTION IS WITHIN NORMAL LIMITS IN APPEARANCE. THERE IS A 1 CM AREA OF CEREBRAL SPINAL FLUID SIGNAL ADJACENT TO THE LEFT CEREBELLAR HEMISPHERE WHICH PROBABLY REPRESENTS A SMALL ARACHNOID CYST BUT COULD REPRESENT ARACHNOID GRANULATIONS OR CYST IN THE DEPLOYED SPACE OF THE LEFT OCCIPITAL BONE. MUCUS RETENTION CYSTS ARE NOTED IN THE MAXILLARY SINUSES. THERE IS MUCOPERIOSTEAL THICKENING IN THE PARANASAL SINUSES. PITUITARY ABNORMALITIES OBSERVED AND NOTED.

    BACTERIAL MENINGITIS SUSPECTED REFER FOR FURTHER EXAMINATION (URGENT)
    AM:asg

    I frequently go through what they say is Addisonian Crisis. This is an emergncy situation and leaves me prone to infections and the like, and makes it hard for me to keep working because of a lack of energy. The problem is only when I enter a crisis does the hospital help, because the law makes them, and the very cortisone treatments that would prevent this problem I can not afford, and they will not administer. My health is reaching a tipping point and I need money. I am not a bad person, and I have tried over the years to handle this myself, but at this point I can not. If you can help me, please send to my paypal account t_bennett76@hotmail.com I truly appreciate any help you can give. I will do CPA leads for you, legitimate only, send out emails with my safelists, any number of things you may need.
    I know you guys are skeptics but I am on the level, and this illness is why I have been absent for so long. My need is thousands of dollars and I am trying to make money but I need more, so if you can donate, or use me for something, please help. Again, paypal account t_bennett76@hotmail.com and I appreciate it.

    move to france.... my mums got something similar to this but called multiple sclerosis and all treatment costing about $2000 a month is covered and so is all hospital bills and medical care too

    oh and she manages on her own to look after me and my two lil brothers everyday just fine..... stop drowning in your own sorrow and take action.... only you can make it better whatever it is

    I live in the U.S. and MS is nothing similar to what I have. I am offering my services if that is what help requires.

    yes we use to live in the Uk and then moved to france because of that.... and the symptoms you have listed such as

    "prone to infections and the like, and makes it hard for me to keep working because of a lack of energy"

    "DIZZINESS WITH IMBALANCE. SEIZURES.VISUAL CHANGES."

    is all the same as with MS

    If you can't afford medical care and it's life threatening you can always apply to medicare in the US and they will approve you. They pay for everything.

    Just had a read through here too:

    Sounds horrible, man, I really do wish that I was further along and could help. I know it doesn't feel realistic, but I mean, Canada was mentioned, as was wonderful places to live like France. I mean, maybe you would not want to be there forever, but it could change your life, in great ways, and later you could come back home to the states after you stack it up medical-bill-free. I only say this because to me, I would do it, I would go elsewhere (but, to be fair, I probably wouldn't come back).

    I hope you the best. Have you ever heard of "Charity Care"? I'm actually assuming that is the "life threatening-only" help you are talking about, but worth a shot to see if your facilities have that as well.

    You a Kossack? I do not discuss politics here, by administrator rule, but nice to know some Kos family is here.

    Nah, first visit actually, you know I had to google your story before I got all emo and empathized :p

    I just read this block of text (still poking around ^^):

    lol love it. But not to detract your post, I hope there is some way.

    Hey, maybe you can promote a donation page on PPC! They have official donations pages, and there are a lot of people out there in a good position to help, and maybe if you target what they search for, you can get their attention! I wish I could help, I'd give anything to have money to spare in general, let alone for a good cause.

    I doubt anyone will just be willing to send you $800 a month. I think it's time to get a steady day job buddy.

    I lost my insurance, and I have a job, but no benefits. I am asking to do some freelance work or for some small donations.

    Just googled cyber begging sites and got like 57,000 hits. There are sites just for that and places to post to. Doesn't seem to be very welcomed here. I work in a hospital and your local hospital social service should be able to also provide you with a resource list and there is also welfare in all states that will help pay your bills. Wortha shot. Wish you luck.
