I was living in AZ my sister left a needle on the ground when I was working out, the needle went and lodged vertically all the way into my foot.. I went to the hospital after trying to shake it off, I got hit paying $300 for a visit just for them to give me crutches and leave me with the needle in my foot. I was very sick and disoriented no matter how much I begged they would not take the needle out I was in serious pain and had it in for 2 weeks until I turned pale and sickly. I went to another hospital and got hit with a $800 they refused to take the needle out and turned me away to only advising me to take benedryl for sleep. I had a friend drive me to foot doctor and lend me $250 to get surgery the foot doctor took half the day digging out the needle. After I moved out to WA and have been working very hard, I am hoping to get health insurance soon I workout, eat healthy and yet I have convulsions in my sleep and I can't afford it. I am worrying so much I cant sleep. I tried a free clinic but they told me I need to have kids to get insurance or be disabled. I still have faith and hope that I will get through this. I have a bright future and I want to live for my success. Food stamps also help me pay for the expensive healthy food. I make 1700/month but have tons of bills.
