I would apply for Medicare

I too live here in NC and I would apply for medicare and try medicaid. Certain Hospitals in NC if you go to the main business office has an Emergency Relief Fund where they go by either your income and sometimes will cut the bill in half or completely delete the bill. I had with my last child Cheri a really bad pregnancy that kept me in the hospital several months. Lost my insurance back then because I was not allowed to work. Me and my first husband were in a complete crisis back then and somebody told us about the fund. So we went and applied. They called us a week later and paid of the $150,000.00 bill. Try it out! But I would apply for Medicare and try to get on Disability at least until you can get back on your feet. Also check into Medicaid also. Check with the Foundation here in NC too to see what they can offer! You might just get lucky! Prayers for you! I have met several in here from NC but so far you seem to be the closest one around me!
