Where to turn?

It's great to turn 21, then again. it stinks. Reason being is that I will no longer have medical insurance! Meaning all my insulin and supplies must come out of my minimum wage job's pockets. :-( I just don't know where to turn. That is why I'm here! Any help or recommendations are greatly appreciated.See More
