I'm a 49 year old woman. I have medical issues, and am unable to work. My medical bills are more than 17K.

My name is Leticia. I am 49 years old, I was born with a brain injury called hydrocephalus (excessive fluid in the brain). With it, came Cerebral Palsy. I was blessed to marry a wonderful, older man, named Manuel, and we have 2 beautiful sons. Through the past 15 years, I have acquired Type II Diabetes, Meniere's Disease, and Celiac Disease. My diet consists of eating foods low in sugar, no salt, no caffeine, no wheat, no barley, no rye, nor oats. It's a very hard diet to achieve. I have no insurance due to high costs, and I have medical costs totaling more than 17,000. My husband is paying monthly installments to pay this off, and I'm stressed about the strain it's putting on us. I'd work if I could, but it's just impossible with these conditions. Plus I don't qualify for any Government Assistance. I don't want to see doctors anymore for fear of the rising costs, yet my health is important too. I'm really at a loss here. Thanks.
