Alenee Posted September 4, 2012 Share Posted September 4, 2012 I have a friend in her 50's, no kids at home, who appears to have a chronic illness (I posted about her last year asking for help in getting a diagnosis) but so far is still undiagnosed. She started getting sick about four years ago and has slid downhill ever since. When I talk to her via phone, she can only say a few words and you can instantly tell that it is taking everything she has to attend to conversation. She's been through tons of doctors but none can figure out the diagnosis. That, I think is the major problem....no diagnosis...lots of wait and see or new trials, AND stuck trying to get help via the state. She doesn't have any money. She cannot work. Her dh left her about seven years ago. She called me last night to ask for help. I'm going to see her Friday to record her (She knows this) so she doesn't have to repeat herself. I will also take notes. Her biggest needs are: a) help selling her house....she's out of money. b) getting a social worker. We're in WA state so if anyone has experience or knows someone who does, getting this kind of help for an UNDIAGNOSED person, please respond. This is so hard. I know I can help her get her house sold but the social work/welfare stuff is a big unknown for me. Thank you! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
