I spent last night home alone. Not out by choice. Not because of strife. I spent last night alone because Nick was in the hospital.
On-going blood pressure problems, chest discomfort, and a family history of heart problems finally sent Nick to the local doc-in-a-box. From the doc, he was sent to the hospital. Today they will do some tests.
How will we pay for this? I don't know. Nick is the major breadwinner here. How do we meet the bills? I don't know. What happened to the American dream? Why can't the richest country in the world take care of its own people?
This frustrates me to no end. It becomes a downward spiral: No insurance, don't go to the doctor as needed, wait until it is an emergence, end up in hospital. Along with this is the stress of being in a job with no sick benefits so for everyday of sickness - that is a day of no pay. People are out paying $3000 for a purse while others are dying for lack of care. I don't get it.
