Hi all. I had been laid off a couple of months ago and moved from North Carolina to Colorado to look for a new life. I've been job hunting for a few weeks and had two interviews last week. I was offered and accepted a job this morning, woo hoo! I start next Monday and I will have insurance again in a month. I haven't seen any doctors and am running out of meds because COBRA was too expensive. I'm very glad I'll be among the insured again soon. My next goal is to move out from my friends basement, after I pay off a couple of bills. I'm lucky to have a friend who has been able to help me out during this time. Thanks to HW also for being supportive.

Congrats! Although it makes me mad that our health insurance is tied to our employment.
