I have been struggling with this for awhile now. Me and my husband do not have health insurance, we simply can not afford it. We make to much money for state medical but not enough to buy our own. The company he works for offered it for a very brief period but then they cancelled it because it was to costly.
I had to go to the Ob/gyn today to have my mirena removed. I had it an extra year and then I finally made an appointment to have it out.The office manager was great and we worked out a payment plan. When I saw the doctor today I almost felt like I was being lectured and kind of talked down to. I got the whole speech about lack of health insurance is the number one reason for bankruptcy etc.. He felt that if he removed it that I would become pregnant and then he said then you would have health insurance...the state would pay then. I said no I don't want any more babies. I don't know if he was insinuating that thats what I was going to do? This man does not know my life story and what me and my family have been through the past 8 or so years, nor do I feel like I should have to explain myself. I'm probably over reacting a bit but he kind of made me feel like crap. But then on the other hand at the end he said some very nice things. He wished money wasn't a factor in how woman take care of themselves without having to spend their life savings. He wanted me to continue my care there and if there was anything he could do to give a call etc... I don't think he was trying to be mean but I still feel bad.
What are we to do?
