TMJ is going to make me lose my life...

TMJ is going to make me lose my life...

I was diagnosed with TMJ about 5 years ago. Two years ago the headaches began; a day hasn't gone by since that I haven't had a migraine.
In the last three weeks the pain has become so severe that I can't live normally. My house is a mess, I can not play with my children, I had to drop down to part-time in college. My headaches are extruciating, my jaw doesn't close or open very much, it hurts terribly to try and turn my neck, and it feels like a balloon is trying to burst in the back of my head.
I've lost my life, and I'm now to the point that I really don't care anymore. I need help!!!
I can't have this fixed---a maxilofacial surgeon informed me that I MUST have surgery---however, I rely on the state to help me with medical insurance. As soon as I show the physicians the medical card, their attitudes immediately change---in their eyes I am some lazy woman depending on the state to support her. That's just not the case!! That is why I am going to college, so that I don't have to depend on those people any longer.
I have seriously been considering ending my life, this pain is unbearable... I'm not even living, I'm existing.
Please, help me...
