I've been away for a week, and it brings up a new worry.

I've been away for a week and wasn't planning on going that long between posts, the idea is to post daily, or as close to that as I can.  There's a reason though, I've been having some pains in my side and was in and out of the emergency room a bit.  Ended up being nothing important, just a slightly inflamed liver, not the alcohol style, just irritated.  While I was lying in the hospital bed, about six hours into my second ER trip, I was glad I had health insurance.  And I got to thinking about that, I'm twenty six now.  For most of my adult life that wasn't the case.

Now, what about that middle period of a start up?  When you quit your day job because you can meet your bills, but you don't quite make enough to pay for your private insurance.  That's not a point I'm looking forward too,  and is making Angel Investors look like a brighter image, despite what you have to give away for such a small amount of money.  It'd at least help take some weight off getting an equivalent insurance plan, I don't want to go from a PPO to a bottom rate plan.  Otherwise, things are progressing nicely.

  5. Always have health insurance. Nothing is free Jessi D, you're paying for it one way or another. A socialized healthcare system would be nice here if it were implemented correctly instead of just forcing you to buy privatized insurance.

  6. Keep your head up and don't panic, stuff is always tricky when you first start out but it's important to just stay on track!
