Who pays for the medical costs?

Person getting care: The person getting medical care pays for his doctors, his tests, and his medicines . . . Because he is getting the services. However, as a community and a society, we want to have the healthiest, happiest population possible. So, there are insurance, governmental, and non-profit systems set up to help everybody afford good medical care without causing financial hardship (idealistically speaking!).

Many possibilities: You sound like you are very distressed; i'm sure your doctor would want to know you're feeling this way. There are many possibilities for this kind of feeling -- including severe depression. Please see your doctor for a checkup. S/he may also want you to see a psychiatrist and/or psychotherapist who can work with you over time. Treatment can help -- good luck to you!
