Ok, over the past few weeks the shit has hit the fan so to speak. Throughout my life things have been pretty steady, My parents have always worked as did I starting the summer after my 15th birthday. My mom a few weeks ago found out that she had thyroid cancer and had surgery to take it out. She's doing ok but it took a big hit on our finances even with our insurance.
Looking forward it looks like i am going to lose my insurance through her (roughly 400$ a month) and may end up needing to move out (things at home are too high stress to balance it, work, and college... long story). Since the most likely of the above is losing my insurance my family and I decided that i should probably get medical assistance till things turn around.
That being said I really feel crummy. The way my health is and my piss poor luck necessitates that I have insurance but i just cant afford it. Our whole lives we have worked for every thing we have and I cant really help but feel like I'm tossing that all away.
I guess maybe I'm looking for someone to say that I'm not just taking the easy way out but It just doesn't feel right. Normally this is where I would pick up a second job but no one is hiring. This kind of makes me wish the Army hadn't dumped all over me like it did... then things might be much better off...
