Too proud to ask, but getting very nervous about my future

My name is Becky. I had lumbar fusion surgery in November of 2005, and was off work for one year to recover.  I returned to work in August of 2006, having to driving 2 hours to my job, sit 8 hours at my job, then sit another 30 minutes to drive to a house where I was staying.  then I drive back 2 hours to my home on my days off.  in january my hours were cut back to 5 hours, 20 hours per week, basically cutting my fnances in half for the past 3 months.  i saw my neurosurgeon last week and now he won't let me work at all and my spine is now worsened to the point where i may need more major surgery to fix it again.  i have no vacation time, and now no income whatsoever while waiting for tests, very expensive tests, i will have to pay a large sum of.  On top of this worry i had 3 large lumps removed from my breasts in December, due to prior breast cancer and needing biopsies.  the surgeon told me there has been so much breast tissue removed after having sixof these surgeries done that he will have to do mastectomies the next time.  my worry and stress are beyond words.  the financial end of this is something i have no clue what to do.  social security disability could take a year or more to get and in the meanwhile what do i do with my mortgage, phone, gas, food.  i need advice or help, please.  someone help me or guide me to someone who knows what i should do now.... please..i am at the end of my rope.
