Re: [IP] yet another drs appt!



Hi Heather

I feel for you with your health care problems. I felt the same way for many
years. I had lost my job and declined cobra because at 18 you don't think
that you are going to be ill. six months later I had mono and 2 months after
that I was DX in DKA and 6 days in the hospital with diabetes. I had just
started going back to school. I ended up on Charity Care for 6 years because
I couldn't take the college health plan and couldn't afford BSBC on an
individual basis. It's hard but doable. Hang in there!!
