I haven't posted here in a while, but hoping one of you guys (or girls) can help me.

I lost my job in January (after a house fire, many of the old regulars will remember). I haven't been able to secure employment (unemployment rate in my city is 11.4 % or so). I am uninsured, with very little savings left (which are being saved for household expenses + credit card bills).

I've been having severe+chronic pelvic pain (reproductive tract), since January or February, and have been trying to receive treatment since early May. Being the middle of October, the most I've gotten would be repeated rounds of the same basic tests/antibiotics/painkillers. I'm giving up on getting treatment in my area, and most likely, FL (being from Michigan, I can say that I can tell the medical system here [even when I was insured] is poor).

I'm now looking in other states, preferably northern, in which to receive the treatment I need, before I become sterile/infertile, need parts removed/hysterectomy, or this turns into cancer.

Does anyone know of a hospital (learning/teaching hospital or otherwise), or a clinic, there in NJ, that would offer financial assistance to an out of state patient?

I greatly appreciate any advice, as I'm giving up.

Try St. Joseph's in Paterson, NJ. They are a charity hospital, not in the best area, but certainly a great medical facility.

Planned parenthood should be able to help you. A lot of their clinics are sliding scale and with you currently being unemployed it would be free.
