Please Help!

My 48 year old niece suffers from Fibromyalgia, has no health insurance.

Her anxiety level is very high causing her blood pressure to go up. She has a short attention span, a speech impariment unable to articulate her thoughts, feelings clearly becomes angry and frasrtuated. Her coping skills are limited, I try to help her, but she says I make her nervous. She is nervous about everything, agitated unwilling to be helped. She says yes help her then she backs down for she can't cope with new changes.

I hate to see her so much in pain plus extremely anxious unable to explain her self. Any advise or suggestions, I would deeply appreciate it.
