    I'm 21 years old, living on my own for the most part. I'm attending school online and working full time at the hospital. Unfortunately, I make just enough money to pay bills and not enough really for fun or lots of food. In that case, I have not enough money to buy low protein foods. I can barely make it buying formula, as no insurance will cover it for me. I'm on my last can of formula and waiting for sample packets from my dietician to get by until I can afford to buy formula again.

    Does anyone have ANY suggestions? I'm starting to freak out….

    What state do you live in?  When I was in college I did not have health insurance and the states of Virginia, South Dakota and California all helped me cover the expenses of low-pro food and formula.  When I say helped I mean covered b/c my income was so low.  Contact your state and they should be able to help.
