Always Alone

I used to shot up meth with someone I thought forever otherwise I wouldn’t use a needle anyway. It wasn’t forever. I was diagnosed with hep c in 2014, and I was a raging alcoholic. Oh so bad. Anyway, my oldest daughter and I have an apartment together now. I need a job but no one believes me when I tell them I’m so very tired. I can sleep for six days at a time. I know I’ve seen me do it, and yes I’m sure depression is part of that. My health insurance wont pay for treatment until I’m really badly off. Just got done being denied for the second time. I feel I’m going to lose the only stable home we have known for a few years. I’ve been on my own since I was 13. Homeless over eight years and sometimes I fear leaving my apartment. Afraid it will be gone by the time I come back. Sometimes I feel like ending this cuz its gonna end so why not sooner?

    Hi @trishy1982.

    I can’t imagine everything you’re going through but please just know there’s always someone who’s willing to listen and to hear you. If you ever feel like you need help, don’t hesitate to contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or online at or any local options such as medical professionals, counselors, or support groups. Also, Help-4-Hep ( can be a great resource for any living with hepatitis C. They can walk you through an insurance denial and options available.

    We’re all thinking of you. Sometimes online support comes a little easier, and the community’s here whenever you need.
