Common Questions and Answers about Depression help without insurance


Avatar f tn Going through the same thing. Do you have insurance and does offer any short term disability? Mental illness is many times covered, and that's what I had to do.

271792 tn?1334983257 But, he said he generally tries to get people well on their way to a good dose of an antidepressant before starting to get them off the Suboxone because the relapse rate is so much higher without something to control the depression. Hang in there, keep on posting and think about perhaps trying an antidepressant.
Avatar f tn The conculsion is the key element in the treatment. Without that there is to treatment and no help for depression. I want to let people know that ECT treatments are not like they are depicted on movies. They are very relaxing before and after. The patient is not awake for the procedure. After the procedure was done, often times patients ask if they are next. The nurse will tell them that they have already had their treatment and they can just lay there and relax.
647391 tn?1275020233 But-if you need support-it is there, free, and you might meet some good people there. Question everything! Don't just buy into any 'self-help' program without intellectually deciding if it feels right for YOU. Some people have their own agenda and aren't who they pretend to be. Some of us (me) aren't good at 'picking up on people' who want to use people to feel good about themselves. Churches also may have 'grief workshops,' divorce groups.
Avatar f tn For instance, my health has been declining and it was creating anxiety because I don't have health insurance which was leading to bouts of depression. I realized I had to get back to healthy and I couldn't afford to run off to a thousand different doctors so I started putting things down on paper which lead to me researching my health concerns. It distracted me from my daily mundane routines and gave me something interesting to do with my spare time.
1442059 tn?1340244552 When you see the psych on Monday consider being completely honest with him and perhaps he can help you see a psych who will help you resolve your life situation first before you go into treatment. Good luck to you.
Avatar f tn I dealt with depression before pregnancy for most my life. Its gotten worse during my pregnancy and my doc put me on anti depressants until my third trimester. How do i handle something like this? And these are people who i thought really cared about me.
Avatar n tn He says that he does not want to see anyone because he is afraid that the company he works for will find out from the insurance company that he is seeking help with this serious matter. We live in Michigan. Do you know what the laws are concerning the insurance companies?
Avatar n tn i have been diagnosed with hepatitis c, with a viral load count of one million. i have no insurance and am wondering how i am going to pay for the pegasys tx. if anyone has any experience with this, please help...
1391695 tn?1298143389 OK, thanks, hopefully my insurance will cover, if not, this is good info. Do you think I can call my insurance and ask? If so, what is the exact technical shot I am asking about?
Avatar f tn because I don't know what to do. I am battling with depression now because of this. I feel that there is no help out there for me. I thought I would try to write here to see if there was any way you could help me out. I don't know what else to do. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. As each day goes by my condition becomes worse and so does my metal health as well.
Avatar f tn Hi Rennee, Hope this helps. Ok I undestand your need for help. There are places that take patients on a sliding scale per visit. It is your debt over income. They offer things like cognative behavioral therapy as well as medication if needed. I would try the first. It is an option just look for a psy place in your area for low income. You need help and they may be able to give it to you.
Avatar f tn I just sometimes want to kill myself and give my baby to a caring family so she doesn't grow up poor or has a bad childhood because her mom other can't make enough money without a man. I can't help but want to kill myself so bad tonight. I only don't because of my baby I can't give up but at the same time I'm so dead inside. I just want to die. I don't want to wake up next to my husband.
4753943 tn?1359938169 I only want to get off of Effexor because I will only be on my mother's health insurance for the remainder of this year. After this year I will be without insurance. I read that the generic Effexor could be as much as $400. I don't want to be in a situation where I stop because I have to and run out of medication- cold turkey. I want to be in control of getting off of it so that I could taper and take it slowly.
918275 tn?1254072352 Well I take Geodon and it DID make my depression go away but it's not approved for treating depression but I think I actually lost a few pounds after starting it. Probably just my diet changing without me knowing it or something since I don't have a consistent anything in my life. It's not associated with weight gain at any rate.
Avatar f tn Also I strongly beleive that if you can get outside in the fresh air, have a little winter sunshine this can also help raise your spirits a little...but it will not cure clinical depression. Are you aware of what is making you feel so low? You mention that you are having trouble coping and I am wondering if there is anything in particular that you can identify? If you would prefer not to go "public" I would be very happy to see if I can help you if you want to send me a PM.
Avatar f tn I am on day 14 now, but the depression I was in, hit me while I was still taking the *** pills too. I still have depression, it has only let up a tad bit. I may not be the right person to help you with this, because I still have depression at this time, but I had to comment because your words should have came out of my mouth.
Avatar n tn hi again, I posted last May and got great help, so here I am back again. Facts: Hep C, type 1A with liver damage 3-4, completed 48 weeks of Pegintron/Riba in Sept 06. My biopsy improved to early stage 3. The bad news is I never cleared the virus by the more sensitive Hep C test. My doc and I agree it would be worth a second try since I missed a week of dose during my first 12 weeks.
1168718 tn?1464987135 On top of it I have big medical costs even with insurance. You can get SAD lights to help with depression. They are cheap here these days. You just have it on for a half hour in the morning. I use them.
4592241 tn?1359816738 She is terrified of my depression. I have been hospitalized for depression several times. I just want to be drug free. I dont have the money for counseling at this time but have had counseling before. It really just made me even more aware of how messed up my emotions are and wanting to just be normal. My father committed suicide when I was very young ( thats where the PTSD was from) seems like the doctors just keep giving me pills. I know there is no real cure for depression or addiction.
Avatar f tn I have struggled with depression for many years but now it is worse. I take med. for it but my mood is still very low. My husband lost his job last year and I am taking courses. We have no income at this time but are managing for the moment. There is nothing to look forward to, we never go out, or do anything. I am living in a prison and I don't know how to get out of this. It will be some time until my training is finished and until I can look for a job.
1659502 tn?1302491227 I know that the Medicaid Buy in for Working People with Disabilities is one option that can be of help if your state has it. Generally without insurance psychiatrists and other doctors have a fee that may not be affordable. There might be other insurance options as well depending what you qualify for. There are still mood stabilizers that you haven't tried. This is a full list:
Avatar m tn Did I mention that my HIV medication would cost over $4000 a month without insurance? I swallow in pills a month almost the equivalent to what I'm making. Good thing I have insurance, but still! So, I guess that 20 years is probably going to be fairly unpleasant. Not to mention lonely and sad. So again, you have this milk in the fridge that you will not consume and you know you wont like. It's going to expire in a week. Wouldn't you just pour it out?
Avatar m tn Right before I left treatment about a month ago the administrator told me that I could come back because they had money sit aside for people without insurance and I could come back for a few days to a week if I needed to. I don't know if there is a place in TN like that but I am in KY and I went to The Brook Dupont hospital. May be something you want to check into so you know what your possible options are before it gets too bad, I hope it doesn't but I must be realistic.
1540869 tn?1351217613 I've had it for two years now a little over and it only happens when I get really stressed out which leads to anxiety which leads to depression then more racing obsessive thoughts. I mean I can have the same thought for sometimes hours sometimes days, its the worst feeling in the world because they are not pleasant thoughts and they make me feel guilty,crazy,sad,and suicidal. PLEASE help and opinions. I'm going to see my therapist thursday to see if I can get on anafranil.
