I'm going to go off on a rant and this is extremely personal to me + maybe a few others in this same situation. I'm young, living on my own from my IM money, made roughly $25k profit this year ($30k total made) after expenses, and am looking to get into another bigger project. Now my main thing is I'm losing my vision, need some simple steroid eye injections to get me back and making good cash again. I can't make any money to be completely honest, if I want these eye injections ($3k a shot every 4 months), for me to get medical attention I need to function as a human being I need them. I've gone blind 4-5 times this past 2 years. hell I had cancer and lost an eye and am dealing with radiation after effects from the treatments. The problem is, if I make money the US Govt won't give me medicaid. It's seriously a lose-lose situation. Once I go back to not making money, which is very much soon blowing $300-$500 a month on medical bills + living expenses. Once I go back to no money, the Govt will start giving me disability, medicaid, oh the whole fucking nine yards at $750 a month handed to me for being a good disabled boy. If I go back to my parent's house I'm back at step one, and they won't give me my old room back or space to setup my computer. They are a real "down home country family" who strongly believe in handwork and to be a good little factory slave. I can't handle how this entire system is setup to keep people down. I don't want a fucking handout, hell let me pull out a loan to get these eye problems fixed, but don't fucking make me go back to my parent's house. Are there such things as medical loans? It's a private-for profit doctor office where they can help me somewhat but not no where near enough. Should I try emailing the owner and asking for a credit line? Loan shark?
