36. Sorry to hear that, I'm right there with you

 

I was rushed to the hospital over a year ago with chest pains. Blood vessels around heart were at least 70% blocked with cholesterol.

Yay meat! One was 95% blocked! So they put a stint in it. After I got out I also couldn't come up with the copay either and got collection agency's slapped on my ass as well. I pay two of them now. It will take a good two years to pay them off so no $$$ for my meds either, stopped them months ago.

Later on I was supposed to get a colon check and I developed bleeding in my gut which made me sick and dizzy. Went to see a gastro doc and the fuckin ins wouldn't even cover the consult so I said to hell with it and let it ride.

In the meantime our lousy health ins copay is now 4000 dollars a year for singles and 8000 dollars for a family! And if u manage to meet that outrageous BS then they only cover 80% of the bill!

Hell the copay went up 2000 dollars in one year, I expect it to be 8 to 10000 dollars next year when I just drop it cause whats the point? Oh and I work in a job that does not allow u to go bankrupt. So when it happens Im out of work at almost age 60.

Only thing I can do now is be a total vegetarian and hope it clears up my veins. I think its working, I haven't had any chest pains in a couple months with no meds either.

That and prayer. I just sit around and wonder what I'm going to do the next time I have a health emergency.

Pray for a quick death I guess, you know the republican healthcare plan for non rich people! This country is soo damned evil now.

The rich bastards who destroyed it for the 99% are going to pay for it someday, mark my words!
