Dear lethalncute;

Do they have a medical assistance program where you live? Perhaps an agency where you can get free medical help. Have you called your doctor's office they may be able to refer you to someone that can help you? Perhaps you could come out and tell them that you just do not have the money. It is an emergency that you see the doctor!!

I understand the feeling about not be able to afford to go to the doctor but YOU CAN NOT AFFORD NOT TOO. This is a necessity!! You absolutely need to go to the eye doctor; please go and get some medical treatment for yourself.

Let me know how things turn out!!!

Take care............

Hi Lethalncute,

Welcome to the board. :cool: Nice to meet you.

I see that you live in New Jersey. I do too. I'm in Hoboken.

I'm going to give you a link to a "must read" thread that was that was started by Leslie (Momtotwogirls). She took the time to give us the links and information about some assistance programs that she came across. I added the links to some assistance programs that have either been discussed here on the board or that other people have told me about. There's even links to a couple of posts by NPF staff members that give links to the assistance programs that they know about. We don't know very much about most of these programs, but it can't hurt to check them out. I can tell you that Miranda (LadyFraser) and Jessica (stormechaser) both got assistance for some very expensive medications thanks to a program called http://www.needymeds.com. (It sounds like a scam site, doesn't it?) Miranda got assistance while her husband was transitioning from being self employed (with no benefits) to working for the government with excellent benefits. She shared her experience in this thread (circa 2003) : http://www.psoriasis.org/forum/showthread.php?t=3979. Jessica shared her experience in this thread (circa 2005): http://www.psoriasis.org/forum/showthread.php?t=13119. Links to their stories can also be found in Leslie's thread. Here's a link to it: http://www.psoriasis.org/forum/showthread.php?t=12379.

I hope this helps.

Good luck. Keep us posted. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't be a stranger.

Mike

I agree totally, you cannot afford not to. I would even forsake food rather than risk my eyes.

Dear G:

Me too!! I am learning each doctor has their specialty so if you need to take care of your eyes then that is what needs to be done!

Dear lethalncute, have you gone to the eye doctor? I hope everything is okay. As always I keep everyone in my prayers and only hope that you receive healing. As I said earlier, YOU CAN NOT AFFORD NOT TOO!!

God Bless to All.
