Hi Barb,
Thanks for rooting for me.
But it does sound like you've got the exaggerated take on what I really feel and am experiencing. He actually is doing his job and he does call me back when I call him with concerns or questions.

2. Will you be my caregiver???? will you make all those calls and followup calls and follow, follow-up calls for me trying to get help?
I've actually been down that route somewhat and it's so frustrating, which is why I finally chose to go into debt to see this private doc and to live stress(ish) free for awhile. All the stress that goes into getting what little aid there is out there is almost not worth it. I wouldn't even know where to begin. I am being covered with dental and medical (the medical part is a joke however), but have recently qualified to receive low to no cost meds. But that was after way too many phone calls following up with doctors, case workers, pharmacies, etc. etc. I finally just ordered from Canada. If it were easy to 1. find the aid, I would 2. wouldn't take so much out of me to just get poor quality care and service (i.e. last year with all my rounds with psychiatrists at two clinics and rounds with ADs - no thanks).
It's sometimes more difficult than it is worth it. If you know where I could begin to start, let me know (in regards to financial aid). It's also a bit degrading, they normally treat you like shit (in regards to the medical care part I've encountered)
The health care in this country is not good. And what little aid there is is poor quality and you have to wait for eons. You have to make nothing in order to qualify for anything, (like $500) per month. In California that's a joke. So even tho' I make more than $500 a month, and still live going further into debt each month, I don't think I can qualify. The system doesn't work with you to help yourself basically.

So I've acutally been fine the past two days. quite good actually and sleeping fine. Thanks for your concern Barbara, but I think you have a slightly off perception of how dire my mood state is.
BTW, I know what you mean about not being productive in limbo land.
