Therre were times this year where didn't eat for two or more in a row for about 4 - 5 months because we didn't have much money, I also remember days where I could watch mukbangs just to satisfy my hunger without eating anything. It was painfull to watch all of my classmates eating what I ate in 2 days just in one lunch break. I lost so much kilograms (around 3 - 4) that my period stopped for entire 2 months (I got it back but it has became really irregular and heavy). I was coping by telling myself that atleast I got compliments on my physique, but because I was constantly hungry and my weight was falling drastically I was constantly sleepy, tired, in a bad mood, always feeling sad. I'm under the healthy weight with around 10 kilograms currently, I'm trying to atleast lift it up with 5 kilos because of threats to my health.
It was really emberassing having to choose between pads or food in a store with a lot of people infront of me.
I never had a need of medicaid because most of the time I am able of affording my medical care with savings, and all the medical care I need is mostly deltal but I rarely need a dentist because I have good dental care.
Just keep in mind that if you have trusted friends, family members, savings, regular income you'll most likely be able to survive untill you get back on your feet.
Good luck, hope everything gets better!
