I started my busy Monday with a trip to my med doc at 10:30, which took way longer than it should have, of course. I then went and paid the electric bill, the water bill, and my car insurance. I came home long enough to change my clothes for my 2pm appointment with my primary care doc, a follow-up appointment after being in the ER. I walk into his office and am informed that if I don’t give them at least $100 today I can not see him. Really? I have less than $200 left for the week and haven’t bought food yet. (Sorry folks, I’m hooked on that eating thing). I offered to pay them $40 this week and they still said “No”. Hmm I guess if you are poor and sick, you just stay sick. Who cares right? And let’s not even get into the “You need to sign up for medical insurance on Healthcare.gov?” I can’t afford that either. Poverty sucks. I told hubby that if I die in the next week or two to just sue the hell out of them and please write on my tombstone, “I told them I was sick!”
Oh well…it is beautiful today, 80 degrees, sunny and breezy. I got all the bills paid for another month, and today..I feel okay. I won’t let anything steal my bliss…Time for some meditation…or a nap!
P.S. I forgot the BEST part! The receptionist told me that they weren’t even going to charge me for a “no show”! Isn’t that sweet of them?
