I learned today that Congress is not only cutting Medicare and Medicaid, it is also cutting Section 8 subsidies. Last year, mine was cut by one-third. There will be a rent increase, too. I can't even eat, thinking of just how I can make it through this. And the cuts will be progressive over the next years.
I got home at 8 tonight from having more blood tests, an MRI and ultrasound and X-rays. This was the last thing I needed tonight.
I have no control over these, as does anyone else, but it is enough to make me feel like giving up.
Any advice for getting out of this head space of panic and hopelessnes? I feel so vulnerable, and so I am, along with the rest of us.
