The cost of treatment and the inability of some patients to cover those costs………is just an added stressor that makes people sicker and it's everywhere. It's unforgiveable on the part of the insurance industry, the Congress and the medical and pharmaceutical industry. I've seen two people DIE because they couldn't afford care and they were middle class family and friends. This is a very real and terrible part of the current medical system. I won't say more. Once I get started on this subject I can't be stopped….

@cindylb I totally understand your frustration and I have seen similar cases. But it’s the system we have to work with right now. We could all use her voices and those of our friends and family to fight for better, but I think supporting each other in figuring out how to navigate what we’re dealing with is the best way to cope in meantime. It’s ridiculous that we have to, but it’s what we have at the moment.
