Health Care or Headache?

Seriously...President Obama and The Senate and Congress and all who make our laws...instead of making health insurance mandatory, how about making it #1- more affordable for all and #2 WORTH HAVING!! I now have a $2000+ emergency room bill because my unnamed health insurance deemed it 'non-life threatening' and won't pay any of it! Uhm, I almost passed out in my shower, my own doctor's office told me to go to the ER and I had no idea it was a simple reaction to the blood pressure medicine that I didn't need until I got there, and that's what the doctor decided was wrong. Oh, that and I'm diabetic---which, if any of those morons had actually been listening when I was giving my history they would have already known and they wouldn't have had to "diagnose" me as a diabetic. Uhm, my problem that day wasn't my sugar...it was the unneeded medicine...which we didn't know it was unneeded until I almost passed out.

Almost passing out in the shower IS life threatening. I've slipped in the shower before and thankfully din't get any broken ribs, just a nasty bruise on my side. This time though, what could have happened? Especially with all that running water? Thank God my boyfriend had called off that day and was home to help me.

Not to keen on my health insurance at the moment, but what can I do? I have NO CHOICE in what my employeer offers me or my boyfriend.

Health care is shabby everywhere.
