I know how you feel. I'm on SSDI, and my medicaid only is open for about the last two weeks in a month. If I have to go to the hospital early in the month, the bill comes to me. I have tried on some occasions to put off going to the hospital, but that just isn't healthy.
You seem to know what you need, and when you need it. Please remember that the people who love you love you for a reason. I'm not suggesting that you need to stick around for them, that is just another burden that you don't need. What I'm saying is that they see something special in you. You have value, You are beautiful, and you are loved and wanted on this world.
The hosiptals ALL have programs for people who are unable to pay. If you contact the billing office, they will tell you how to go about it. Don't lose your life just because you may have financial difficulties, you are worth so much more than hospital bills.
