Lately it seems like everyone has been complaining about medical insurance, and how patients like me consistently get left by the wayside and are forced to suffer. Cost is now the defining factor for whether or not a medicine or procedure gets approved for payment. Fortunately, I had been spared from the worst of it as of late, but a few days ago my two-year lucky streak came to an end, and now the sign in my room reads “03 days since the last insurance debacle.”
Talking Joints, my audio wed storytelling series is garnering some serious acclaim. If you have not listened yet, or are unable to find it, here is the link again. Listen to me opine about some of the crazy things that have happened to me because of my disease, and talk about some of the thoughts and fears that we all share, chronically ill or not. They are only about five minutes each, so it should take no time at all to listen.
