Medicare for all, please

Today, I'm sitting in the ER with my 6 ovarian cyst rupture. The pain meds have already worn off and my vag hurts. I also had my gallbladder removed last June, and my right ovary removed last January. The staff here remember me. Most expensive friends I've ever had. FML

I feel you OP. I have Crohn's Disease along with other disorders and am hospitalized often and live with severe chronic pain and now need my gallbladder removed. Hang in there. Things do get better. 💜

When is America going to join the rest of the first world and get Universal Healthcare?
And before anyone starts on taxes, yes we pay a bit more taxes but we've got lots to show for it.
I really don't see the point of having low taxes if you need to go into deep debts over medical expenses or education.

Same here!! Chronic illness buddies without gallbladders 🖤✨ lol.
In the hospital constantly. With the war against opioids right now, it makes it a horrible time being there.. but at least some of the nurses are nice!

And that's the reason I only go to the hospital if I am dying. I don't have a 8 grand to pay for a 20 dollar ace bandage or a few stitches when I can just as easily solve it from it from home.

As a woman I had severe abdominal pain (I’d never had a ruptured cyst before) I didn’t go in because I was worried it was gas or “just” a ruptured cyst. I didn’t want to go to the ER for nothing. Well I ended up needing to call paramedics because I kept passing out and my husband was gone. I had a hemorrhaged cyst and lost 2.5 liters of blood internally. I nearly died and they did a surgery to remove my ovary because they thought the pain was from it twisting. Thankfully I got to keep my ovary but nearly died from blood loss. Soooo please don’t be like me and assume it’s nothing.
