Sorry I’ve not been posting in weeks… updates- and why I’d prefer Universal Healthcare. Bernie Sanders has my vote.

Had a raging kidney infection that must have gone on for a LONG time… I had to ask my doctor for a urinalysis. They kept insisting it was simply ‘referred pain’ from my back procedure.

To add more to the mix, I had my menstrual period for a month and a half. Had an ovarian cancer blood test- need to take the DNA Colors test for more genetic mutations related to breast and ovarian/uterine cancer. Apparently, they’ve discovered MORE mutations, other than BRCA1 and BRCA2 that can indicate this. It’s $250.00 out of pocket.

Next week I have a uterine biopsy. Fun.

These medical bills are KILLING ME. I pay for my own health insurance for my family, because I am self-employed. Currently I pay over $650 per month… after my back procedure, I was shocked to find out that my insurance covered only $880.00, I still owe $2200. The deductible for this is $13,500. My year to date totals are $12,000! This is INSANE.

I changed my insurance for January- I will be paying $1360 a month for insurance and only have to pay 10% of each charge.

Needless to say, I would much prefer socialized medicine. I had it when I lived overseas and I had it when I lived in Canada. People should not have to go bankrupt because of their health. Universal Healthcare should be a RIGHT, not a privilege.

Low income people with free state medical insurance have it better than my fancy-schmancy crap that I pay for!

Seriously, I am scared to go to the doctor now. The holidays are coming up and I want to be able to afford a nice one for the family and not have all my extra cash go to medical expenses.

The middle class is getting SCREWED.

That being said, I am ‘feeling the Bern’ for Bernie Sanders.

    • the American health care system is HORRIBLE. It makes absolutely no sense and only the very rich or poor can have health care.

      If you are poor and eligible for state insurance- omg, so good- better than what I pay for.

      The middle class is being eradicated.
