Something that I and other people deal with. All I can do is ask for forgiveness and try harder to not let my problems make relationships unbearable to be with.

reblogging again because it’s painfully relevant.

I’m sorry

This is often the way I drive friends away. I smother them with affection, or constantly seek affirmation that I matter/am important to them. Or they misinterpret my friendly affection as creepy romantic interest. : /

if anybody asks me why i hate men, i’m just gonna redirect them to this post.

it’s pretty fucking obvious that men only want to invest in breast cancer research to further degrade, objectify, and jerk off to body parts they already feel 100% entitled to. that’s what is at stake for them. 

what about the women whose “tatas” weren’t saved? how must they feel being surrounded by awareness ads that focus more on keeping women’s sexy-sexy-titties-to-continue-titillating-the-males than saving real life human beings and helping survivors? 

If anyone’s wondering, those posts came from here. It’s a forum for breast cancer support. Give it a read, and you’ll see how many women are outright abandoned by their husbands, sometimes after being married for decades, because their “tatas” couldn’t be saved.

And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America

Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.

Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.

Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.

But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?

Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.

Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crocks is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!

This is absolutely ridiculous.

I live in New Zealand. My mum had a heart attack when I was 13, she was in hospital for at least 3 months and our government pays for most of our bills so I think my parents only had to pay around about $500 - 1k. With the option to pay it over a period of time.

Like????? Does the America government even give the slightest fuck about the people that live in their country???? Honestly.

No. They don’t.

In the past two and a half years I have had three surgeries - had multiple hospital visits/stays for intensive testing prior, and multiple hospital visits afterwards every two weeks to a month for follow-ups. About 20 - 30 hospital visits/stays, 3 surgeries, and I paid zero dollars. I live in Canada. My husband immigrated here to be with me from the States, and he’s still shocked when he can see a doctor/get care at no charge. I cannot fathom how difficult and worrisome it is to raise families in the States. I’m so sorry anyone has to go through that.

Healthcare is a business. You might get patched up but it’ll cost you more than you make in a year(or two, three or four) depending on what happened. Some people are lucky to have cheap plans or get help but just like the bills in these photos it’s the reality for millions of people. It’s a damn shame. If you ever go into the E.R. bring a roll of lottery and scratch-off tickets with you.
 Once I came home from school and lifted the window to open it but the glass broke and I cut my finger. Blood was running fast. I called an ambulance bc nobody was home. I got stitched up. I was sent an $800 dollar bill for the ambulance ride itself.
