Would you risk you health for money?

I have to stay in a hospital again if I want to be on disability. I am not able to stay in a hospital because I can't sleep there. There are four or five people in a room. I don't feel safe there. The disability is less than $100 per month. When I was there I had many panic attacks because I didn't feel safe. There were so many sick people and they scared me. It is a mental health hospital. I was there because I have panic disorder and depression. A man was hospitalized in the same hospital, he got infected with Covid and died. Would you risk your health for money? That hospital has bug infestations. And I can be infected with something dangerous.

If it's necessary I would, but I would make certain the conditions wouldn't make me worse.

@dya80dya That's sad you don't have a better hospital to go to.

I can't change the conditions. No one can.

Only if you have to be at the hospital. If you stay, you can stay as long as you can. When you feel you can't stay longer you can go home.

No, I have to stay for several days. I have to go because I need to not lose my disability. But I can't and I am not able to stay there without sleeping.

If it causes me anxiety attacks, I won't stay. What's the use of money if my condition gets worse?

If you feel that money is a necessity to continue your life, I would try to do it. Otherwise, I don’t think I could because the conditions sound so foul to me it would make my panic disorder worse if I had one. Is there absolutely no other place you can go? The bugs would be what would get to me. If you do go, just keep reminding yourself it is not forever. You can survive anything for a short amount of time.

I surely can't risk my health for money. My healthy is very important than something else.
