unable to work full time anymore. Unable to pay for prescriptions. I'm bipolar and stage 3 emphysema. My fev1 isn't low enough to get social security. I make too much for assistance. My anxiety is through the roof. Talked to disability lawyer he said I can't be working at all to file but he would file on both not just emphysema. I needed to be unemployed. Who can afford to do this?? I'm selling stuff now as is to make rent. The system has failed me. It's so frustrating. Once you get emphysema there is no incentive to try to get better. I'm going to barely work,barely eat and barely sleep. No medical to improve my standard of living. My bipolar side says keep smoking it will all be over soon. I'm afraid to leave my house in fear of catching a virus. I worry all the freaking time. I just don't see how you guys do it.
