Seriously, every time I put something up about my knee, I get one, two
I love that you all care.
I just wish it were easy.
My job, that I have been at for 22 years... I'm old... took away our health insurance about 6 years ago.
Anyone ever had to get their own health insurance policy?
its a joke... a big fat stupid joke.
What you pay for? A lot of nothing...
I have to pretty much front everything on my own, all the while paying huge monthly premiums.
Seriously - I have a friend who is a fire fighter that had to just change to a family policy since he & his wife had a baby.... their amazing, fantastic health insurance is like $125 more then mine a month. Their coverage takes care of 3 people... a baby on top of that.. & only $125 a month?
So if I go to the doctor, I know there is nothing he can do besides tell me to ice it, keep it up, go easy, blah blah blah
... & if it still hurts, come back & we'll do an MRI
Well, he told me the same thing with my bicep tendon & my back pain...& guess what - I still never went back...
& why I'm still in pain.
I had to have an MRI for an emergency a few years ago & do you know, I just paid it off a few months ago.
So yeah, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go to the doctor & get it checked & have an MRI to know what's happening...
anyone want to front that bill? ... yeah... its not as easy as it sounds.
This is me
|or at least having it|
but having a crappy plan
The even MORE frustrating thing is our work still covers the top big wigs of the company insurance policies. How is that even fair?
A co worker that is on my level had some big health problems the past few years herself & ended up having to file bankruptcy... hearing her stories of how much she had to pay & the results of how it affected her whole life & that was the only thing she could do? That scares the fire out of me...that's how awful personal health care is...
I hope this doesn't offend anyone.. I know you all just want the best for a blog-sister... I really appreciate that... I do... I just felt like I needed to explain so you all didn't think I was some weird naturalist hippy or something... which I kinda am... but not to that point where I'm an idiot.
So some people say if they hit the lottery, they're going to Disney World... yeah, I would too - right AFTER I had a huge round of MRI's!
