31166782_1531125698852858_r.jpegWhat can I say? For a few good years, my aca insurance covered a shrink and a sleep specialist and a neurologist and the medications they gave me. 

Now it covers none of this. I've been paying out of pocket and short changing my medication and it's made me go through severe sleep shifts and mood/executive function troubles. It's interfered with my ability to work... To do anything. 

I'm working at half capacity and this is the reason.

My rozerem and mirtazipine combined cost about four hundred a month. My psychologist is a hundred an hour. I'm supposed to see her weekly, but I've been going every other week, once a month, every three weeks... Whenever I  can afford her. Because I'm only functioning at half speed I'm not earning much and I'm just keeping up with past medical costs- my care credit is maxed out. 

Seeing her and taking my medication correctly was stabilizing me and i was starting to do well... I've checked and none of the aca/wa apple insurances will cover these things. I did spend hours on the phone with doctors offices and insurance companies. No dice.

I'm adding everything I've got to sell to my shop site this coming week to try and help. I can't really function well enough to do that like i used to. So i need help. If you want to help me keep my dignity, buy some art. If you just want to pitch in, here is how.

Mental illness is a absolutely wicked beast. I don't know what else to do at this point. If you can spare a dime, here's my hat.

my venmo is @resonanteye, if you prefer that.

my partner is also ill so I'm in quarantine while his immune system is low (chemo). so I'm still letting this run. I am flat broke and have been posting my art links everywhere, hoping to sell things, to help out with the regular bills.

I had to skip one shrink appt to stay above water and I've cut back every other bill I could find. I'm really grateful for all the help so far. two people sick is worse than one.

I've got my psychologist covered through the beginning of October. HUZZAH and thank you everyone. esp my HP family. you know who you are.

the ultimate goal is to get on hetlioz.
it apparently works on sighted AND blind folks equally well. however... we'll check the image attached and you'll see why I'm not even aiming at it yet. eventually maybe it'll come down or they will agree to cover it for sighted people, but not yet. I take rozerem now, which isn't as directly helpful for circadian rhythm. but hell it's only $300 month after coupons. compared to hetlioz.


since there's other illness in my household besides my own, I'm going to be home a lot more. I'm trying to make more art/list to sell more things online to bridge the gap if I can.

thank you everyone who's helped so far. it means a lot to me and it's hard as hell for me to even ask. humbling. and reminds me how many people really care.

this month of appointments is covered, thank you so much.

it's really easy to tell people to seek help when they're having real problems with mental health, it's another much more important thing to actually make it possible. I appreciate this more than you know. thank you. THANK YOU.
