OH! You are so lucky to be Canadian...for so many reasons besides healthcare
Yes, I agree with everything you are saying. I do hope that others will chime in. I was hoping to kind of commiserate with people having similar symptoms and how they were dealing - maybe in a non-medication fashion. Surely I'm not the only person in the US going through this without insurance.
The next thing I want to say (and I was thinking about
this last night) I hope I am not coming across as a complainer. I didn't jump on this forum to complain and be a big old B***! :/ I was thinking though that that was exactly how I sounded.
Without going into a lot of details - my family supposedly makes too much money to qualify for public assistance/medicaid. At the same time to buy into a health care plan is too expensive. My husband and I are both retired. HE is on medicare because he is old enough but I am not there yet (I am younger) I have looked and shopped for health insurance but it would cost pretty much MY entire monthly income! We need that income for, ya know, living, bills, silly things like food. Our country has a serious problem where health care is concerned. There is some hope that with a new administration there might be changes. I don't really hold out a lot of hope for any real change in that department anytime soon.
There I go complaining again!
