Many of our readers struggle to get to the doctor because of lack of insurance, transportation, assistance, money, or mobility.
We wish we had really great solutions to this problem. We only have moderately good solutions that work for some people some of the time. We hope something here might work for you:
💮 If you do not have insurance or cannot afford medical care.
💮 If you have ME/CFS and going to the doctor makes your symptoms worse.
💮 Not always possible. Sometimes possible!
💮 If you have no transportation to get to the doctor
💮 Planes, Trains, Hotels, etc
💮 Some of our readers have home aides who help them get to the doctor
💮 Not easy. Not impossible.
💮 There are certain reasons that Social Security will accept for not going to the doctor
