I have no insurance. I've been having health problems and have had a problem w/ anxiety and depression for years. I haven't been on any medication because I've had no health insurance. I can't stand the thought of running up hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of medical bills. I'm a SAHM, and really have no employment options at this time. My SO refuses to marry me so I can get on his insurance, because according to him I should apply for state medical assistance. And I refuse to apply for state assistance.
What are my options? Am I S.O.L. or is there any way I can see a Dr. w/o running up a huge debt? Thanks :)

It is unfair to your children for you to refuse to apply for Medicaid. They need a healthy mother. You need to apply for Medicaid on Friday. You could ruin all of your lives forever by not doing so. One ER visit or hospitalization could be all it takes to wipe you out financially. You could end up homeless.
Your city will have a mental health clinic. It will be free on Medicaid. It would be on a sliding fee is not on Medicaid but they will MAKE you sign up for Medaid. You may be able to see a doctor in as soon as a week once you apply for Medicaid.
