When I got sick 10 years ago it was right around 911 in NYC so between that and the state of my husbands mind-he owns his own business-it took a dive and he had to borrow big time to stay affloat. I was forced to go back to work much too soon. It was not good and just in the last 2 years things have gotten much better-but it took a long time. I always say that this is a disease of the rich-oh, and my GI and surgeons do not take insurance and I have to go for more surgery soon and my husband is freaking out again.
