A year ago, I was a single mother of four in rural Georgia with an income of just $2,500.
My husband and I were working on a small farm in a tiny town outside of Atlanta.
I had to raise three kids, and we had no money to pay the bills.
We had been told we couldn’t be paid, but I knew we had to pay.
So I bought a card and started to pay it off, every month.
My credit card debt ballooned to more than $100,000.
And it was costing me and my family so much to stay at home and be a single mom.
We were lucky.
Many states had enacted laws to help people pay for their health care expenses.
But not every state was doing enough to help those who are most vulnerable.
“We had to be careful about what we did and didn’t do,” I told Mashable.
I was also scared about my health.
I was told I was allergic to bees, so I was scared to have any contact with them.
It took a year of battling with insurance companies to finally make payments.
The next step was to pay off the debt, which meant paying a little more each month to make sure I paid my bills.
Then I started saving, paying off the interest and then paying off all my other bills.
By now, I had more than enough to cover my family.
It wasn’t until the end of my last month of coverage that my insurance company decided to end my coverage.
The next month, I went to the hospital and got an emergency appendectomy.
It was the first time in my life I had had surgery, and I didn’t know what to expect.
I remember thinking, I don’t know how this is going to go.
I’m in the hospital, I’m still paying for the procedure.
The procedure was a huge blow, but it also was a way to save some money for our medical bills.
I spent all my savings, and my health insurance paid for the operation.
My doctors had recommended I have an appendectomy to stop me from spreading disease.
But the doctors at the hospital told me it wasn’t really needed, since my appendix was already growing, so it was just an extra appendectomy that I needed to have.
The operation wasn’t as risky, and because of that, I didn.
As the cost of health care has increased and the number of people who can’t pay for health care have risen, the need for more affordable coverage has increased as well.
Many of the most vulnerable Americans are paying a higher percentage of their income in health care costs than ever before.
For me, paying my bills with a health insurance card was a no-brainer.
My monthly bills for medical expenses were about $400.
Now, it’s about $500 a month, but this is still a good deal.
The more I have insurance, the more I save.
My debt is down, and so is my health, which is why I’m finally saving and saving.
I can finally retire and not worry about paying the bills and paying the rent and all my health care bills, because now I don’ have to worry about that.
My plan is working.
