Sucks when you can’t speak the language and have limited resources!!! I finally got coverage. I call the place that suppose to evaluate and treat me daily for the last 3 days. Not sure if it’s the same person. But apparently they don’t have anyone that speaks English.

that’s wonderful. How am I suppose to do this?

Hi Missingapart

I'm sorry to hear you're having a tough time. I'm not sure what you're trying to access help for but it sounds really frustrating that it's not in the right language. Have they said what they plan to do about this?

That sounds really irritating. I do hope they can organise themselves better to give you some support soon. Are you getting any support from anyone else?

Take care,
Larina

I'm sorry to hear it - would it help to talk here about what it is you need support for at the moment?

What Country are you in? What language do you speak? I use to live in a Mexican immigrant neighborhood no on spoke English. I cut my thumb and needed stitches and ran to one of my neighbors for help who did not speak english. He was able to help me just by seeing my injury. He banaged up my injury. I hate hospitals so this was good for me. I guess what I am saying in case of an emergency just show up at their doorstep. Most gestures are universal for help. Please just wrap your arms around yourself and tell yourself it will be alright. No one can hurt you. I pray you will get th help you so desperately need. Lots of hugs Jules
