Can I just say...I hate not having health insurance.
As if if were not bad enough that I feel like a nasty illness
is tracking me down, the thought of going to see my
physician makes it all the worse.
I have not been to see my Dr. in over two years, even though
I have some health issues going on that should be followed up
regularly. Why? Because I do not have health insurance.
Paying cash every time I need to take the kids in, is a real
budget killer, let alone even entertaining medical bills for
myself. Thank the good Lord, I am rarely ill enough to
warrant immediate medical care. Most things are well
handled homeopathically.
Then, after my dental appointment today, I began to
panic about what happens if this temporary fix doesn't
force the tooth to heal and I have to chose between the
loss of the tooth or root canal. Guess which one wins?
And that is only 1 tooth of several whose fillings managed
to come out after less than a year of having them all filled.
All the cavities I had filled as a child had to be redone recently,
yet again. They had to be redone when I was pregnant with
my last child who is soon to turn 9. Then they have been
redone twice since then and now must be done again. Why
can't a stupid filling just stay in and stop causing me trouble.
I really hope healthcare in this nation gets fixed. I make
too much money to qualify for michild insurance here yet
don't make enough to have much left after paying bills to
even consider being able to pay for private insurance.
And I am one of the lucky ones. I have a friend, recently
jobless, takes multiple medications, and was told there is
NO Medicaid here in Michigan right now. How can this be?
How can a government program be gone? They said 1 or 2
slots "may" open in the next month but there is a huge
waiting list for it. Thank goodness there is a free clinic here
that may be able to help with some of the meds.
Without her meds, her physical and mental health will
deteriorate rapidly. I can tell you this for sure, it breaks
my heart everything she is going through. Just when I
begin to feel sorry for any circumstance in my life I need
only look at her.
How unfair.
I understand that some people abuse the
system and just want to live off the proceeds and hard
work of others, but what of those that are just hard hit
by life's circumstances?
As my friend Jo often says, " Can't He just blow the whistle
and call us out of the pool already?"
I know that life's struggles are a part of having free will in this
world, and we should all make time to list all that we have to
be thankful for, but sometimes a girl just wants to whine.
