My mom was approved for Medicaid and starts treatment next week.
She is embarrassed and ashamed that she is getting public assistance, but is relieved that she'a getting the medication she needs.
Personally, I couldn't care less about being embarrassed. When she and my dad divorced, she pretty much got nothing. No retirement, no nest egg, nothing.
I look at this as an "it's about damn time something good happened for her."
And I pray that it works.
