Be very glad you have that option!

Yeah I am. I'm just glad there's a state law that they HAD to cover me until I'm 24.

Yes!! If there's a way to get it and keep it--do it. Many young people don't realize how important it is. And the older you get, the more you need it.

I have lots of medical problems now, so I can only imagine what a mess I'll be when I'm older. I learned to plan ahead for the future, after watching my mom and her health.

That's good!

I'd been sick my whole life and experienced a few years of good health and thought I was passed everything. Uh... no. And now I'm a whole lot worse on many different levels and no insurance. So even if you get healthy for awhile, trust me--find a way to keep the insurance.

I definitely will. I've had weird stuff most of my life. Like when I was a kid, I had a blood disorder, called HSP for short. Scared my mom half to death. Then it was fibromyalgia. And Chronic Pain something. Then Chronic Fatuige. My doctors weren't sure what to do with me.

Insurance will ALWAYS be something I have. No matter what. It comes before anything else.

I've sworn I have Chronic Fatigue since I was 14 but no doctors I've been to believe in it. But I know that's the problem.

It sucks. *hugs*

Yes, you and I are quite used to feeling bad. :(

Chronic Fatigue sucked it out of me. I'd eat lunch, then just get so tired I couldn't do anything. If we were at the mall, even an hour away from home, I'd get so tired, I had to go home immediately.

But over time, it faded. I don't have problems with it anymore, thankfully.

When I did a sleep study thing, and they came up with this fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, pain thing, my doctor made me switch drs because it was outside what he knew. Then my new doctor never really addressed it.

I just have for-shit doctors that honestly don't care. I eat and I'm done in. I go to the drugstore and I'm wasted. By the time I get dinner cooked, I'm so tired I'm no longer hungry. So none of them can't tell me there's not a problem. Yet they refuse to help me and no one can't tell me it's not because I don't have insurance.

That's so wrong. No doctor should be able to treat someone like crap, just because they don't have insurance.
