7. I couldn't afford 4 days in the hospital, 2 in intensive care
but I wasn't quite ready to die, not this time.

Those SOBs need to realize if they don't back off, they will be killed the next time, as in the execution of corporate "persons" who are engaged actively killing Americans through neglect, denial, recission, and refusal to cover. People who do get care find out it's so poorly covered that they end up bankrupt, anyway.

I'm sick of being viewed by those assholes as expendable because I made the bad decision to get deathly sick at the age of fourteen.

I will be able to pay my bill but I'm lucky in that regard. Too many of us are not.
