Healthcare.

So, Sean had to get an MRI. He’s been having horrible headaches in the back of his head, so he went to the doctor. The doctor immediately ordered an MRI. I was really worried, so worried I nearly burst into tears in the waiting room. My thoughts were immediately, “OMGTUMORANEURYSMMENINGITISDEATH”Thank Maude for Effexor! It was the only thing holding together the dam.

The MRI came back clear. I am so, so relieved.

Though it did cost six hundred dollars. Yes, we have health insurance. Health insurance covered 80%, and it was still six hundred dollars.

What the fuck is wrong with this country? We would have been sooo fucked if this would have happened a couple months ago, when he didn’t have health insurance. Did you know most bankruptcies are medical-related?

    i’m glad to hear your husband is OK. (we’re going through a little something like that right now.)

    i used to work for a personal injury lawyer and though there were some fakers, there were far too many families i saw/met whose entire lives were turned completely upside down because of a “small” fender bender . . . WTH?!
