I am a 63 year old army vet. I served during the end of the Vietnam conflict. I have the following pre-existing conditions: spinal stenosis, fibroid tumors, hypertension, cataracts. I have not been able to afford ANY medical care since May 2015, when my employer refused to pay for surgery and I was unable to work without it.
i might not die, until my pesky pre-existing condition of being raped as a child comes to light. maybe i should have lived better and been born rich, huh? you can all choke on the ashes of every single person you just killed. enjoy cashing that unemployment check in 2018.
If I can’t afford my depression meds I may become suicidal again. If I can’t afford my heart meds my blood pressure will lead to kidney failure. If I can’t afford my colonoscopy they won’t catch the polyps until they’re cancerous (literally what killed my grandfather).
