i think we have a few other members facing similar challenges - maybe they will chime in here.
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
have you tried applying for SS Disability Insurance?
That is one step for at least getting a limited imcome.
Don't know about Ca, but in NY there are various social organizations (some gov, some church sponsored) that are set up to stop evictions--even if you have been evicted, they are places where can get lists of, and help applying for, gov (fed, state and local) housing. Nnot easy, especially now with all the cuts and poverty, the number of these housing units do not meet the needs of all who need them, but at least get on some lists.

I had to get out of there before dealing with another summer of putting up with my neighbors extraordinary second hand smoke. I developed asthma on top of MS. 2. I am on SSDI. I am on a waiting list for an adult community but you have to be 55. I have 14 months and 10 days to go. As far as the agencies to help me, I make 100 over the maximum income!
My question is that is it possible for you to leave LA for an inexpensive town in California or leave the state all together?
I lived up in albuquerque when i was first diagnosed in 1996 and by 2008 when i could no longer work i relocated 220 miles down to southern new mexico in a small poor ''cowtown'' where my 1BR rent went from $550 month to $300 month whiched has helped me tremendously as i took a hell of a pay cut losing my appliance repair tech job to now being on SSDI although i'm grateful for it as i'm paralysed in my feet and ankles.
